2016 Terroir Riesling
Brix at Harvest
Crisp, refreshing and fruity. Harmonized aromas and flavours of flowers, green apple, citrus (lime, lemon and grapefruit) and stone fruit (peach and nectarine). Crisp, zesty acidity and a lingering finish.
The fruit, from a single Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyard, was harvested the 1st of November, having hung for an extra fortnight to capture further varietal flavours. Maintained at cool temperatures in stainless steel to retain the fresh citrus and tropical nuances. Fermented to dryness while keeping a luscious palate, which balances the natural acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Where it start? Riesling is arguably the best food wine with its cleansing acidity. Match flavours with everything from Hawaiian pizza to in-season fruit salads. Or provide a refreshing contrast to rich or creamy dishes.
