Creekside Estate Winery
Sauvignon Blanc VQA
Creekside Estate Winery opened in 1997 in small-town Jordan, Ontario. The Winery is run by a passionate (some say fanatical) group of industry veterans who have decades of experience.
Right from the start Sauvignon Blanc has been front-and-center as Creekside’s flagship white grape. We do it up unoaked, oaked, single-vineyard, pan-Peninsula blend, bubbly... just about every which way because we love it. Sauvignon Blanc carries its fresh energy and cornucopia of flavours wherever it goes, never failing to invigorate, refresh, and beguile. However, “savvie” does cost Rob years of life expectancy trying to get the pick date just right.

Power sources his fruit from three different vineyards for this core" wine in the portfolio. It's always consistently good and one of the top SB's in Niagara at this price point. The nose shows grapefruit and gooseberry with a touch of kiwi and grass notes. It's vibrant and fresh on the palate with citrus, herbs and vibrancy through the finish.” 89 Points, Rick VanSickle, Wines in Niagara.
Our signature white varietal exhibits the classic Sauvignon Blanc character of grapefruit, gooseberry and grassy notes on the nose. The palate plays up the cooler 2014 vintage, with a lovely vibrant acidity, clean flavours of lemongrass, white grapefruit and gooseberry, all ending in a crisp finish.
Every vintage provides its own challenges and virtues and 2019 was no exception. With a late start to the growing season, we saw grapes ripen later than usual. Careful attention in the vineyard was vital in managing sugar levels, acidity, and most importantly flavour. The resulting wines are true to our cool climate roots with vibrant freshness and crisp acidity,
big, bold fruit and delicately balanced.
