TASTING NOTES
Riesling and Vidal marry well creating vibrant aromas of honeyed pear, golden peach and lively citrus notes which are replicated on the palate. The finish is clean and crisp with a very fresh acidity. The possibilities of food pairings are endless. Poultry, pork, fresh water fish and shellfish, vegetarian pastas, oriental stir-fry’s, and spicy curries.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
A slow start to the season with a cool spring but summer brought hot dry weather perfect for grape growing. Mother Nature however turned the tables on winemakers in Ontario with a wet humid fall. Harvest was quick in an effort to pick fruit before rains affected the quality of grapes. Our Riesling is unique blend of three clones, two Germanic and one French Alsatian, giving our Riesling a distinct style and texture. Great acidity is the defining characteristic of Vidal and has made one of its parents Ugni Blanc (Trebbiano) famous in cognac. Fermentation is kept cool and was completed in 10 days for both wines which blended after fermentation.
