  1. New Riesling dry VQA by Big Head 2015

    $252.00

    Big Head

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Scallop, Soft Cheese


    A ripe wine from a ripe vintage. Ripe apple, candied lemon, and honey on the nose with a hint of “mineral” tones from the sun-exposure. Already starting to show slight “petrol” notes, which are a happy consequence of a generous vintage (see TDN in wine). The palate is dry and fresh, brimming with bright acidity and freshness, but that honey still shines through in the flavour profile along with lemon and white peach. A varietally sound example of Niagara Riesling. This delicate wine would pair well with any white fish done “en papillote”, folded in parchment with white wine, herbs, vegetables, and most importantly, butter. > Learn More

    Cave Spring Vineyard’s Dolomite tier of wines is produced in limited quantities from the winery’s eponymous vineyard, perched high on the gentle slopes of the Niagara Escarpment’s Beamsville Bench. The line-up includes the ‘core four’ vinifera varieties that best suit Cave Spring Vineyard’s terroir, and that Cave Spring has focused on since its inception in 1986, including Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. A sparkling wine made entirely from Chardonnay rounds out the selection. Available exclusively through the winery, the Dolomite collection is a favorite of Ontario wine consumers and professionals as an authentic, high value expression of Niagara’s cool-climate terroir, with the wines frequently finding their way onto the lists of many of the provinces most innovative restaurants.

     

     Tasting Notes:

     

    3 x 2018 Riesling Dolomite
    Aromas of yellow plum, pink grapefruit and anise lead the way, with hints of ginger spice and gun flint in behind. The palate is dry, medium bodied and rich in feel, with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours underpinned by a firm, stony texture and elegant, well integrated seam of acidity. The finish is intense and mouthwatering, replete with white peach, nectarine, cantaloupe and a hint of spice.

     

    Alc/Vol 11.0%
    RS 8.0 g/L

     

    3 x 2018 Chardonnay Dolomite
    The nose is quite perfumed, with aromas of orange blossom, honeycomb, ginger and cinnamon at the fore and notes of Bosc pear, cantaloupe and flint in behind. Dry and medium bodied, the palate is succulent yet round up front, with a saline and mineral in the middle, with a firm, stony texture. This mineral core draws into a crisp, juicy finish of ripe blood orange along with notes of allspice and wet stone.

     

    Alc/Vol 12.5%
    RS <2.0 g/L

     

    3 x 2018 Pinot Noir Dolomite
    The nose is highly perfumed with lifted red berry and black cherry fruit alongside nuances of cedar and spice. The palate is medium bodied with a rounded, juicy attack followed by cranberry and red cherry flavours along with a distinct note of tea in the middle. Fine-grained tannins culminate at this point, tapering down on the finish alongside succulent Damson plum fruit and cedar-spice complexity.

     

    Alc/Vol 12.5%
    RS <2.0 g/L

     

    3 x 2017 Cabernet Franc Dolomite
    A dense, saturated nose of macerating blackberry, cassis and plum, with notes of blacktop, crushed stone and mint in behind. The palate displays a core of succulent yet brooding, dark berry fruit that melds with firm, fine-grained tannins toward the middle. A seam of red currant fruit brightens the wine, carrying into a powerful yet refined finish with notes of tar, cracked pepper and mineral.

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Wow! This is an intense, nervy riesling with all kinds of apple, citrus and floral (jasmin) character. It is medium weight, just off dry but so well balanced in terms of acid and sugar, with really impressive fruit intensity and drive. It is bracing and almost relentless in terms of flavour depth. There is a hint of CO2 adding to the brightness. Some grapefruity bitterness on the finish. Excellent to outstanding length."

    Henry Of Pelham

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml


    Henry of Pelham makes some of the longest-lived Rieslings in Niagara and they back that up by releasing in the retail store back vintages from time to time. I love that the winery releases its top wines (which it makes only in the best vintages) always with some bottle age so that consumers enjoy the wine as it is meant to be enjoyed. We tend to drink Niagara Rieslings (all Rieslings, in fact) far too young. With appropriate age, those wonderful petrol notes emerge and the acid softens to show a more balanced expression of this lovely variety. This is a gorgeous Riesling and one that will age gracefully for 10 years or more. The nose shows intense citrus-pear fruit with wet-stone minerality, petrol and an attractive waxy-lanolin note beginning to emerge. It is juicy and racy on the palate with that playful tension that makes Riesling so exciting, and through it all, a wonderful, fresh mineral note adds complexity and personality. It will age gracefully for 8 to 12 years. If we had a 'Grand Cru' appellation system in Ontario the Riesling vineyard of Henry of Pelham would catch attention. This vineyard produces lovely fruit. This wine is as rich and full as we find in the dry Rieslings of Alsace, and has a brilliant stripe of acidity lacing it together. The Speck family is shooting for the stars with the low yields and hand crafted care they give these grapes: job well done. > Learn More

    Cave Spring Cellars

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    2 x 375 ml

    Breads, Sweets, White Meat


    Solidly in the dessert wine camp in this vintage, this checks in at 102 g/L residual sugar. Peach, apricot and ripe nectarine fruit flavors abound, with a drip of honey. It's juicy and big, but never cloying, and finishes with a suggestion of dry straw.

    Flat Rock Cellars

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Ham, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "The 2017 version shows a racy vein of lime, grapefruit and lemon pith on the nose with the high-toned chalky minerality of the vineyard. The zippy acidity carries a range of citrus, green apple and mineral notes that remain crisp and vibrant through the finish."

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "Produced from the estate's oldest vines, this is a worthy reserve. This wine shows impressive depth and intensity, with powerful fruit flavors led by Satsuma orange and Meyer lemon. There's a touch of spice and an underlying minerality. A sensational value."

    August Kessler

    Germany (Germany), Rheingau (Germany)

    6 x 750 ml

    Salad, Soft Cheese


    This Riesling is named after the blend of highest quality material from the Rudesheimer Berg. An array of flavours combined make an intense and rich Riesling. Honey, malt, nougat, grapefruit and even kumquat are flavours that can be found on the palate. It is refreshing, it is lively, and it has slight hints of slate stone, which balances out the fruitiness of the wine. > Learn More

    Sweets, Tarte tatin


    This has the intensity and richness of icewine, complexity of botrytis, and freshness of Riesling. Honey, beeswax, sugar pear and white flower notes with a hint of button mushroom. The wine is sweet, but finishes fresh and stays with you. Have with Pâté or terrine, or Japanese cheesecake. > Learn More
