Riesling Cuvée Paradoxe

  • 2016
This single vineyard Riesling was grown in the beautiful red clay soils of the Redfoot vineyard located on the Niagara Escarpment. It was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures, with an extra 8 months on fine lees that added greatly to the complexity of the wine. No malolactic fermentation. The name “Paradoxe” was derived from its early picking date. Riesling is normally harvested mid to late October, after Chardonnay. Due to the low yield, these Riesling grapes were “paradoxally” ripe well before Chardonnay.
This wonderfully balanced Riesling shows a rich mouth-feel complimented by beautiful citrus and freshness. A low alcohol of 9.5% makes this an ideal afternoon sipper.
