Description

2018 Vintage is available by the bottle at tje LCBO in the Vintages section or by the case through Stem Wine Group - Call the office for more info.  416-548-8824 The 2018 white wines show elegance, freshness and finesse. The winter was mild and dry, without snow and rainfall and medium-high average temperatures, followed by a rainy and cold spring, especially in May. 2018 was quite different if compared to the typical vintages of the Bolgheri area, mostly regarding the summer rainfall distribution, usually concentrated at the end of August and September. Exceptionally, this year heavy, short and close rainfall fell over in June and July, exactly when downy mildew and powdery mildew are usually more active. Those challenging rainy conditions made our effort in the vineyards particularly prompt and intense. August was less warm than usual, followed by a sunny, fresh and windy September, with great temperature exchanges between day and night, allowing the grapes to reach a perfect ripening condition. A total amount of 330 mm of rain occurred from May 1st to October 1st. The long harvest started on August 20th with Viognier and finished around the first half of October (October 4th) with Cabernet. Regarding the white grapes and wines, Viognier varierty shows freshness, balance and citrus fruits aromas and flavours, while Vermentino and Fiano are complex, intense and mineral.    

Color

Aroma

The nose offers pronounced notes of white and yellow blossom like acacia and broom, with whiffs of vanilla and candied fruits.

Taste

It is intensely smooth and characterised by an electric tang of acidity and minerality. Vistamare finishes on ripe and honey notes. It is a penetrating and intriguing wine already but likely to intensify in complexity thorough time.

Vinification

Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks and barrels.
