This product can not be shipped to CA
Winemaker Marc Bradshaw's inspiration was the world-renowned Riesling wines produced in the Mosel region of Germany. Elegant with sweetness balanced by fine acidity.
Brix at Harvest
Classic Mosel-style with aromas and flavours of white peaches, nectarine, lemon, lime, grapefruit and green apple that mingle together on the palate. A crisp acidity, velvety texture and mouth feel. Best serving temperature 6 - 9 C
The 2015 Winemaker’s Art Riesling was produced from fruit grown in the Niagara-on-the-Lake sub-appellation. In an effort to capture a greater level of the varietal’s inherent racy acidity, the fruit was harvested at an earlier date than usual with the berries immediately pressed to stainless steel for fermentation and daily tastings to monitor the sweetness-acidity balance. At an overall residual sugar of 32.4 g/L remaining, the Riesling ferment was halted with 9.6 % alcohol, guaranteeing a luscious, rich and fruit-flavoured front on the palate conveying onto a zesty, mouth-watering and totally refreshing tail. A wine for the discerning while being a definitive crowd pleaser!
