2017 Niagara Riesling VQA from Tawse Winery
Niagara Riesling VQA 2017 from Tawse Winery – a great Canadian producer – is a blend from carefully hand-harvested fruit from select vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula. This Riesling is a white wine normally reserved just for restaurants.
Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned organic winery, voted Canada’s Winery of the Year in 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2016. Founder Moray Tawse purchased 6 acres on the Cherry Avenue property in 2001. In 2005 he opened his state-of-the-art winery, complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system and a wetland bio-filter.
The inspiration for his first Niagara property came from his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, Tawse is dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
2017 Niagara Riesling VQA – Characteristics
This balanced wine is a wonderful expression of both terroir and vintage, as well as a great value! The nose is bursting with rich aromas of citrus fruits, pineapple, wet stone, and honeysuckle. Notes of meyer lemon and mandarin have a bright expression on the palate. This deliciously off-dry Riesling has a creamy mouth-feel delicately balanced with a mouthwatering finish.
Viticultural practices include vertical shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.
