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 create a medium dry Riesling with an impeccable balance of lush fruit character and vibrant acidity.
Straw green; apricot, citrus aromas & flavours with floral, mineral notes; off-dry, with refreshing acidity.
Straw colour; minerally and quince aromas on nose with mushroom, nuts and pear notes; dry, forward quince/pear flavours with refreshing acidity and a medium-long finish.
For Cave Spring Vineyard, the compounding effect of four decades of carefully considered decisions has earned the winery the reputation of a proud pioneer, brave enough to try new things, and patient enough to await the rewards revealed with every passing vintage.Their evolution was guided by the selection of the cool-climate varieties to the rigorous commitment to sustainability, the utilization of exclusively indigenous yeasts and neutral oak in the cellars, and the constant crusade for more demanding industry standards.
Recalling the joy his father and son had found tapping into their rural Italian roots to revive a small vineyard in the 1960s, John Pennachetti Sr knew that the original abandoned orchard set against the Niagara Escarpment’s limestone cliffs had the potential to be something so much more for his family. Today, more than four decades after John and his sons took a chance and planted some of Niagara’s first Riesling and Chardonnay vines on that plot of land, Cave Spring Vineyard serves as a constant reminder of the good things that can happen when the past is honoured in forging a new future.
