Riesling is one of our most prized possessions, winning a silver medal at the 2011 Intervin International Wine Awards and a bronze medal at the 2011 Canadian Wine Awards!
Integrated aromas of candied lime, orange marmalade, white peach, and pink grapefruit; complimented by floral and spice notes. Fresh on the palate, this Riesling is made in an off-dry style with lively acidity to balance, with a long flavourful finish.
Selected from multiple vineyards, each parcel was harvested separately, based on the flavours that had developed and the natural acidity in the grapes. Each lot of grapes were gently pressed with no skin contact, and cold settled for five days on average, resulting in clear juice with very few solids. The juice was then fermented at cold temperatures in stainless steel tanks using multiple yeast strains for an average of twenty-five days. The fermentation was stopped when the desired sugar/acid/alcohol balance was achieved, making the final wine off-dry in style. Kept on light lees until final filtration and bottling.
