2021 Black Sheep Riesling VQA
All the grapes for this wine were handpicked allowing fruit to arrive at the winery intact. Fruit was gently whole cluster pressed, yielding 600 liters/tonne then transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to ferment at 13 C. Fermentation arrested with natural sugars present; kept on lees until November 30, 2021
The fruit was handpicked, hand sorted, whole bunch pressed and kept on the lees for about a month. It shows beautiful and pure aromas of lime, lemon blossom, green apple and a subtle ginger note. There’s a playful tug of sweet and tart lime/grapefruit on the palate with apple skin and ginger accents on bright, vibrant finish.
Bursting with granny Smith apples, stony minerality, lime and a touch of peach. The palate has lovely with lemon-lime notes and that tension-packed yin-yang of sweet-tart on the fresh and lively finish.
Available at the winery and at approx. 225 LCBO stores throughout the province as a “Vintages Essential” (#80234). Price includes $.20 refundable bottle deposit. Case of 12: $241.80
