Residual Sugar- 8.55 g/L (Dry)
Wine Details - Within Niagara, the noble Riesling grape develops to its fullest potential only in specific areas. We have crafted this wine from selected vineyards throughout our region, where limestone-clay soils, elevation and moderating breezes from Lake Ontario have combined to produce an enticing dry Riesling defined by its crisp citrus character and steely acidity.
Tasting Note - Showing great concentration, the nose exhibits intense aromas of ripe pear, white peach and lime-citrus, complemented by delicate floral notes. Dry in style, the palate shows complex citrus and green melon fruit up front, with outstanding middle palate weight and an accent of white pepper. The wine’s focused fruit carries through to a very bright and persistent finish. Dry but not austere, this vintage stands out for its balance of vivacious fruit, full extraction and rich texture.
What the Experts Say - "The Cave Spring Rieslings are outstanding: intricate, concentrated, detailed, expressive and limpid. Like all of Ontario’s best wines, they seem to occupy a kind of ‘middle earth’ position between Old and New Worlds" - Andrew Jefford - Decanter Magazine
