Luminous straw-green. Delicate aromas of white peach and herbs, plus riper notes of melon and pink grapefruit; a hint of licorice emerges with aeration. Then fresh flavors of lime, melon and pink grapefruit and a juicy, vibrant texture. Finishes with outstanding length. This packs in lots of flavor while sporting only 12% alcohol; I also admire the impeccable sugar/acid balance ... More details

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes are very rarely blended with others in the development of wines, and for good reason. These pale grapes which originated in the cool Rhine Valley of Germany are notable for their 'transparency' of flavor, which allows the characteristics of their terroir to shine through in wonderful ways. The result of this is a wine which carries a wide range of interesting flavors quite unlike those found in other white wines, finished off with the distinctively floral perfume Riesling supplies so well. Many wineries in Germany and elsewhere tend to harvest their Riesling grapes very late – often as late as January – in order to make the most of their natural sweetness. Other methods, such as encouraging the noble rot fungus, help the Riesling grape varietal present some truly unique and exciting flavors in the glass, and the variety of wines this varietal can produce mean it is one of the finest and most interesting available anywhere.

Country: Canada

For over two hundred years, Canada has been home to several well established wineries producing unique and characterful wines from the grape varietals which flourish in the colder climate which typifies the country's wine producing regions. Most of Canada's wines are produced in British Columbia and in Ontario, where the climatic conditions are more suitable for viticulture, although you can also find successful wineries in many other regions of the country, most notably in southern Quebec and around the shores of Lake Erie. Canada is most well known for its production of ice wine, which is usually a sweet wine made from grapes which have frozen on the vine. However, the past decade has seen Canadian vintners expand their repertoire and begin experimenting with many other wine styles, and incorporating less commonly used grape varietals.
