Tawse - Piquette - Niagara-NV


Niagara, Ontario

Piquette is a traditional beverage made from the remains of the winemaking process. The vineyard and winery workers would make this by adding water to the leftover grape skins and seeds and refermenting it. The result is a light and refreshing, low alcohol wine, with slight fizz. With a “Zero Waste” approach, this Piquette is created from from Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, and Riesling pomace, which was infused with our gin botanicals as a “second pass”.This slightly effervescent and refreshing beverage suggest aromas of strawberry, raspberry, and spices. Light and crisp, it possesses attractive berry flavours, as well as surprising peppery notes.
