Hidden Bench - Sauvignon Blanc Béton, Beamsville Bench (2021)
One of the superstars of biodynamic winemaking in Ontario - and recently recognized with awards from the world's leading wine magazine, Decanter - Hidden Bench make gloriously textured wines.
Aromas of ripe Asian pear, pineapple core, flinty minerality, and fresh green herbs. On the palate, aromas from the nose replay with the addition of salted lime, green melon, and cucumber. The wine is dry and zesty with fresh acidity, balanced alcohol, and a long saline finish.
The grapes were handpicked, hand sorted and gently whole bunch pressed. The juice was then left to settle prior to racking and transferred to concrete. Fermentation then occurred naturally with indigenous yeasts. The unique wine was racked off fermentation lees in April, prior to bottling in June 2022.
