Description

From the hot and dry season of 2016 comes this enticing Riesling sourced exclusively from Lambert Vineyard in Niagara on the Lake. The nose jumps with classic Riesling freshness. Powdered candy, lime zest, white peach and just a hint of minerality tie it all together. A smidge of sweetness softens the crisp edge of this juicy and tropical wine.

Wine Savvy - Professional
From the warm 2016 vintage comes this ripe Riesling with a bouquet of powdered candy, lime cordial, sweet apple, honey, white flower and bergamot. Minerality, some sweetness and medium acidity round everything out on the finale. Serve with dim sum.

Winemaking Notes

Harvested in late October. Gently pressed, cold settled in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was halted early to retain the natural sweetness and balance. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at 17C for 2 weeks and lees aged for 1 ½ months.
