Pistachio and banana cream pie, followed by underripe pineapple. A short period of flor aging provides a hint of chamomile and sea spray. On the palate, there is a fun citrus character of quince and orange with a lovely chalky finish.

13% of the grapes got 21 days on skins, also allowing the native yeasts to begin the fermentation. A three-day cold-settling at 10 degrees Celsius was followed by primary fermentation in concrete egg which took 37 days to complete.

100% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation, taking three months to complete and then rested in concrete egg for 7 months with 10 inches of headspace allowing a flor to develop for a short period to impart salty and nutty notes. 

Therianthropy is a winery project located in the emerging winegrowing region of Creemore Hills, Ontario. It was founded by a group of wine-loving humans who are passionate about cool climate winemaking and believe in unearthing the treasures which are the emerging terroirs of Ontario. 

Vintner David Eiberg came to winemaking after a career in investment banking. He took his love of wine and returned to the University of California Davis to train in oenology and cut his teeth working and harvesting with exceptional winemakers in France, California, Oregon, South Africa and most recently in Southern Ontario. 

Therianthropy's winemaking approaches include: fruit from the best vineyards, wild fermentations, low-intervention winemaking, low S02 and long elevage.
