The greatest kept secret of Ontario: killer, world-class Riesling. This Riesling was sourced from a number of sites from the Niagara Escarpment and Prince Edward County; each site adding layers of complex fruit, mineral and acidity, capturing the best of both appelations: from the County exhilarating acid and a bright ethereal palate; the Niagara fruit anchoring the wine with an array of ripe fruit aromas, flavours and a weight on the palate to perfectly balance the livery acid. Whole cluster press of individual vineyard sites. Each block is fermented separately at cool temperatures in stainless steel. Aged 4 months in stainless, no malolactic fermentation.
Riesling at its best! Exhilarating acidity perfectly balanced by an array of ripe fruit aromas and intoxicating florals. Bosc pear, gooseberry and Granny Smith apple give way to orchard blossom and honeysuckle. Loads of chalky minerality add to complexity and appeal.

The greatest kept secret of Ontario: killer, worldclass Riesling. This Riesling is a blend of Niagara and County fruit, capturing the best of both appellations: from the County exhilarating acid, and a bright, ethereal palate; the Niagara fruit anchors the wine with an array of ripe fruit aromas, flavours and a weight on the palate to perfectly balance the lively acid. This wine will be delicious drunk young on a summer patio, showing a depth of primary fruit, or cellared for several years, allowing complex petrol and lanolin notes to develop.

This Riesling is a blend of 70% Niagara fruit (Twenty Mile Bench) and 30% County fruit. The grapes went through a slow, gentle press to avoid bitter tannin extraction. The two regions were fermented separatly in stainless steel tanks, and aged on lees for 3 months. No malolactic fermentation.
Stone fruit on the nose, and a white fruit palate. Crisp, citrus finish with great acid and a bit of sweetness. Suggested Drinkability Window: Now through 2016.
Our Riesling is a blend of two regions, combining the tart, crisp acidity of the County with the lush, ripe fruit of Niagara. Our 2011 Riesling was crafted with 35% of the fruit coming from Prince Edward County and the balance coming from a stunning sight right below the escarpment in the heart of the Niagara bench. The County component brings wonderful minerality and great lemon/lime notes while the rich fruit component comes from the Niagara fruit. The wines were fermented with lots of lees to help express the Terroir. Fermentations were stopped prior to all the components going dry. The residual natural sugar (12 grams/litre) is counterbalanced by almost equal amounts of acidity. This "just dry" Riesling comes in with a wonderfully low alcohol of 10.4 % alcohol.
This beautiful Riesling is the perfect blend between the more aromatic citrus, lime-driven Niagara fruit and a more mineral inspired County Riesling. Beautiful citrus lime aromatics followed by a fresh mineral driven mid palate with delightful length. Suggested Drinkability Window: Now through 2016.
