From the oldest vines planted at our Butlers' Grant vineyards, this Riesling is perfect for sipping on a hot summer's day on a patio or cottage dock. Just 10 grams of residual sugar. Classic Niagara Riesling.
The grapes are from the oldest vines planted at the recently purchased Butlers’ Grant Vineyard on the Twenty Mile Bench. This is how I remember this old-style Riesling from this special vineyard that Rob Power and Craig McDonald used to make at Creekside. The nose shows pure lime, defined stony minerality, citrus zest, honeysuckle, a touch of peach and that lovely ginger note prevalent at Butlers’ Grant. There is some residual sugar in this version, but nicely balanced on the palate with citrus, fresh-squeezed lime, wet stones, more ginger and a tangy, lifted finish.
