Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Lively and vivacious this Riesling is bursting with notes of green apple, lime, apricot, pineapple, citrus peel and crushed stone. Its medium body is bright with acidity and textured with a subtle hint of residual sweetness. In all this is a brilliantly balanced wine with a flavourful palate and a crisp, clean finish.
Vineyard Notes
Although the 2019 harvest season in Ontario was delayed due to somewhat damp and cool conditions, overall it was a decent season. We experienced an unusually late start to sparkling harvest this year, with the first fruit harvested in late September from the Claystone vineyard. While ripening took longer than is typical, the quality was exceptional. The balance of the sparkling fruit was picked by late October and certainly showcased terroir driven sparkling’s. There was a strategy at play as to when to pick the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at their peak before damper, late autumn conditions settled in. Having negotiated this, we expect some classic and elegant wines to follow. As anticipated, Bordeaux varieties hung longer to achieve optimum ripeness.
Production Notes
The 2019 Grand Reserve Riesling were gently pressed upon arrival at the winery and fermented cool in order to retain as much of the varietals natural fresh character as possible. The fermentation was stopped when the wine reached the perfect sugar, alcohol and acid balance and went immediately to filtration and bottling, to capture the lively aromatics of the Riesling varietal character in the bottle.
Winemaker Notes
This elegant Riesling is bursting with aromas of juicy red apple, green pear, peach blossom, lemon drops, and hints of wet stone. The luscious flavour profile is brimming with crisp red apple, soft pear notes and a chalky layer of minerality.
Food Pairing Notes
This Riesling is so versatile - try it with a variety of cuisine such as bruschetta, falafel and tzatziki pitas, Margarita pizza, Pad Thai and crab cakes.
