Produced from the estate's oldest vines, this is a worthy reserve. This wine shows impressive depth and intensity, with powerful fruit flavors led by Satsuma orange and Meyer lemon. There's a touch of spice and an underlying minerality. A sensational value, but just 50 cases were exported to the U.S. ... More details

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 (6.7 g/L r.s. and 7.1 g/L total acidity).

The creamy texture sets the stage for apricot, peach, floral and citrus aromas and flavors. Balanced, tailing off slightly on the finish. On the austere side, and needs more time. Drink now through 2024. 820 cases made, 50 cases imported.

green grapes

Varietal: Riesling

Although they originated in Germany's beautiful Rhine Valley, the Riesling grape soon spread around the world, where it thrives in many countries with a colder climate which can support this pale and unique grapes. Riesling grapes are considered one of the finest varietals on earth, capable of expressing fascinating features of the soil type they are grown on, resulting in some highly interesting wines with plenty to offer those who are looking for something different. Riesling grapes are also noted for their aromas, which tend to be highly perfumed, floral and often with smoky notes accentuating their unusual flavor Because this was always the predominant grape grown in Germany and other such countries, Riesling wineries have always been keen to experiment with its range. This has resulted in dry white wines, sparkling wines, semi sweet wines and several others, but the finest examples are usually considered to be the Riesling dessert wines. These are occasionally made with unusual processes, including the 'eiswine' method, in which the grapes are allowed to freeze in the early frosts, or by allowing the development of 'noble rot', which withers the grapes and results in some truly spectacular and unusual flavors.

Country: Canada

In Canada, wines are produced in many different parts of the country, and there are major vineyards everywhere from Ontario, British Columbia, southern Quebec and Nova Scotia. Canadian wineries have been producing wine for over two hundred years now, and the Canadian wine industry has seen significant development and expansion over the past couple of decades, when the unique attributes of the country's produce began to find popularity overseas. The most widely admired Canadian wines are ice wines, which are made using grapes which have been allowed to freeze during the early frosts. This process intensifies the flavors and sweetness of the grapes, resulting in highly characterful wines with distinctive properties, and works extremely well with the grape varietals which flourish in the cooler climate of the country.
