Bella Terra Wild Ferment Riesling, 2019

Shipped and sold by PondView at Bella Terra Vineyards

2019 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 12.5% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 90 pts

The newest addition to the Bella Terra family, our 2019 Wild Ferment Riesling is a fresh take on an old favourite. This dry Riesling is a beautiful expression of our terroir. The spontaneous (or wild) fermentation was induced by natural wild yeast from our Bella Terra Vineyards and brings out the many exciting layers in this ageable white.

Aromas of lime zest, beeswax, and green apple prepare you for the rich acidity and mineral notes of this Four Mile Creek Riesling. With notes of pineapple and jasmine lingering through its dry finish, this wine is complex yet approachable.

Pair this wine with crab legs and garlic butter and you've got a winning combination!
