2018 Riesling, Estate Grown & Bottled

Paul Bosc and Amélie Boury's Winemaker's Notes

Riesling is considered one of the world’s noble white grapes. It can be made in a variety of styles. This version is slightly off-dry and lower in alcohol. The nose is vibrant and will remind you of lemons and honey. Simply put, it's sunshine in a bottle! 

Miguel Fontalvo's vineyard manager's Notes

We have been growing Riesling since 1978. It thrives in our vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake. While it can be a bit fickle towards the end of the season, our team knows to keep a close eye on the grapes as harvest progresses. It’s generally one of the later whites to be picked and if you’re not diligent volume can be lost due to the grapes splitting their skins and losing all that goodness.

The grapes for this wine were sourced exclusively from our vineyards. We hand select the fruit as it is being picked to make sure only top quality grape bunches are used. We choose fruit from several of our different vineyards; silty, mineral rich soils from those located in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation and some from the heavier clay-based soils from the St. David’s Bench sub-appellation to add depth and character. All the while making sure we are farming our vineyards responsibly and sustainably, like we have done since the beginning.
