Winemaking Notes:

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 Notes:

A lively Riesling with a pale straw colour. White peach, apple blossom, and wet slate lift from the glass. On the palate there is fresh apple, pear, and lemon zest. A balanced wine with minerality and acidity that lingers through a persistent smooth finish with beautiful tension.

Food Pairing:

This wine lends itself to a variety of pairings including sushi, spicy foods such as curries, simple summer salads and grilled pork chops.
