Tasting Notes

Citrus and wet stone on the nose. Gotta get it in your mouth: it's a high-wire act, balancing sugar and citrus acidity on a razor's edge. Neither dry nor sweet, with intense and zesty lime flavours and the mysterious textures of minerality.

Technical Notes

100% Riesling from the Marianne Hill Vineyard, just south of downtown Beamsville on the bench. Harvested October 16 at 19.1 Brix with prominent acidity. Cold ferment in stainless steel. The ferment was stopped after about 3 weeks when residual sugar and acidity levels matched without too much alcohol.
