2018 Small Lot RieslingRegular price $19.00
This wine is comprised of 50% Estate grown fruit with the remaining volume coming from a neighbouring vineyard here in Niagara. The grapes were hand harvested and gently whole cluster pressed for the optimum flavour profile we wanted. Each batch of juice was cold settled and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The fermentations were stopped just before they would have naturally finished to achieve the perfect balance between residual sugar and the vibrant acidity. The wines were then blended before stabilizing, filtering, and bottling.
Tasting NotesThis Riesling has a slight green hue to it. It is showing aromas of white peach, zingy green apple and wet rocks. On the palate, it is very fresh and zippy. It has just a touch of balancing sweetness but I wouldn't call this a sweet wine by any stretch. It has a long limy finish.
Food PairingThis wine lends itself to a variety of pairings including sushi, spicy foods such as curries, simple summer salads and grilled pork chops.
