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 â€“ often as late as January â€“ 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.
The colder climate of Canada is not one normally associated with viticulture and wine production, but in actual fact this large northern country has been involved in wine-making for over two hundred years. Many of the grapes grown in Canada are of German and Austrian origin, countries which share many of the same climatic conditions as Canada, and thus are hardy enough to survive and flourish in the cooler temperatures of the vineyards there. Indeed, many of the characterful and distinctive wines of Canada rely on early frosts, and it is not unusual for wineries to allow their grapes to freeze on the vine for the production of the intensely aromatic ice wine. Most of Canada's vineyards are currently located in Ontario and British Columbia, and recent interest in the country's produce has resulted in many more thousands of hectares of vineyards being planted across the country.
