The 2016 vintage of our Trek Vineyard Pinot Noir displays a light freshness and elegance evident in cool climate expressions of the grape.

The 2016 Tom Thomson Algonquin Red is a unique vintage blend of the Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes, barrel-aged in French oak cooperage for 10 months before blending. The Cabernet Franc imparts flavours of raspberry, currant, spice and dried herbs, while the Merlot adds weight and texture and ripe fruit notes of Damson plum and strawberry and a little cocoa.
This medium-bodied red wine exhibits much of the elegance and attractive perfume that Cabernet Franc grape grown in a cool climate is known for.

Appearing bright ruby with a purple rim, this vintage blend of Cabernet Franc and Baco Noir offers red and black berry fruit, plum, herbs and spicy oak notes on the nose. It is medium-bodied and smooth with a vibrant freshness and soft tannins.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Westcott Vineyard on Vinemount Ridge, a blend of the Burgundy clones 777 and 667. The fruit was allowed to ferment spontaneously, aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, then bottled by hand with no fining or filtration. The result is a wine that balances red fruit flavours with earth, spice and dried herbs, and which will develop further complexity with bottle ageing.
