Pinot Noir 2017 – case of 12
The 2017 Pinot Noir is a true advocate of the cool climates of the Niagara Peninsula. This medium-bodied red displays a clear, bright red colour fading to a water white rim. The nose presents cherries and cocoa bean aromas complemented by sultry rose and vanilla notes. Sour cherries and red currants combine with a crisp acidity on the palate to provide a lasting finish. As a result, this wine pairs excellently with creamy chicken dishes or pork.

Sweet cherries rooted in deep red plums, and subtle cassis notes flow to a palate that showcases vanilla, berries, and smooth acidity for a lasting finish.
According to family legend, in the year 1723, Kaiser Wilhelm a German King, visited the town of Heddesheim, Germany and demanded his dues be paid by local peasants by giving up a portion of their food and wine harvest. He was served wine from a local vintner, Jakob Zimmermann, our great-great-great-grandfather, and was so impressed by the quality and flavour that he immediately ordered a barrel to be sent to his residence. The king then appointed Jakob and his vineyard to become the official winery for the monarchy, hence the name "Königswingert", which translates to "King's Vineyard".
Our seventh-generation, family-owned and operated winery is located in the Niagara Region of Ontario. Our head vintner is Josef Zimmermann, the 6th generation winemaker in the family lineage. He immigrated to Canada in the 1970's and then established King's Court Estate Winery in St. Catharines, Ontario. Since then, the winery has been producing award-winning VQA Ontario wines.
