Last night I was thinking of a Saslove I had recently picked up in the US, but something steered me towards a bottle of my homemade 2011 Pinot Noir. I should find someone in Ottawa with a more refined palate than mine to give a proper review. It has a nice ruby colour, and is fairly fruity, with a nice amount of acid for a Pinot Noir. I'm down to my last half-dozen bottles. I wish I had made more!

Yarden Chenin Blanc? Are you sure? I've never heard of that wine. Perhaps you mean Heightswine (ice wine style Gewürztraminer), Noble Sémillon Botrytis (Sauternes style) or Muscat (alcohol fortified)?
Herzog and 1848 have both a Late Harvest Chenin Blanc. Perhaps it was one of these?
Gabriel Geller wrote:Hi Adam,
WOW! You made yourself a Pinot? Now that's quite a challenge! Even if you have access to quality grapes I assume it's not an easy wine to make but what do I know? I've myself never made even not grape juice... I guess you didn't grow the grapes yourself though. I've never actually heard of canadian PN but given the cold climate I believe there might be quite a few out there. How many bottles did you make in total?
