Wine Details - Representing the ultimate expression of the estate vineyard’s terroir, the sought-after CSV wines embody the pinnacle of Cave Spring winemaking. Handcrafted almost exclusively from Cave Spring's oldest vines—some of which were planted as far back as the mid-1970s—our CSV wines are made using approximately the top five percent of grapes from Cave Spring Vineyard

Tasting Note - The nose displays powerful aromas of white peach, Asian pear, Mirabel and licorice, with underlying tones of wet slate and allspice. Full-bodied and medium-dry, the palate yields concentrated flavours of sweet grapefruit and pineapple, balanced by a juicy, saline quality and stony textures. A vibrant seam of acidity brings focus, drawing the wine’s mineral core through with vigour on the finish, alongside notes of citrus zest and fresh herbs

What the Experts Say -

"Gentle citrus and floral fragrance. Tight, punchy, slightest sweetness on the finish. Sherbet lemon finish". Richard Hemming

"There’s probably no better estate than this in all of Canada, given its long track record for excellence, the large number of wines made and its willingness to innovate. The CSV is a benchmark Canadian Riesling which embodies the richer, riper but very mineral, peachy style typical of the Beamsville Bench" - Ian D'Agata - Rated as one of the top 10 Canadian wines in Decanter Magazine
