    Quarry Road Gewürztraminer VQA by Tawse Winery 2017

    12.5% alc./vol.

    This is our heaviest crop of Quarry Road Vineyard Gewurztraminer yet. The grapes were picked later than usual and unlike previous vintages the juice was pressed off without any skin contact occurring. The nose has perfume like floral notes with ripe sweet guava aromas. A beautifully enveloping mouthfeel that is very smooth and well balanced accompanies flavours of peach compote and ripe quava. There is a noticeable sweetness on the finish.

     

    Limestone Ridge Riesling VQA by Tawse Winery 2017

    11% alc./vol.

    Crafted from hand-harvested grapes, it displays ripe aromas of green apple, pear and hints of sweet lime. Green apple notes carry through to the palate accompanied by a round mouthfeel and a lively finish.

     

    Carly's Block Riesling by Tawse Winery 2017

    11% alc./vol.

    The nose at first sniff is shy before opening up to reveal hints of anise, sweet citrus; mandarin in particular, crisp orchard apples and notes of river rock. On the tongue are notes of ripe pear to start followed by minerality and crisp acidity on the finish. Another stunning wine from Carly’s Block. Vegan Friendly.

    Château Des Charmes

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

    1 x 375 ml

    Foie gras, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    We pick our Icewine at -10°C or colder to make sure every ounce of water left in the grapes is completely frozen. We don’t want to dilute this incredible wine in any way. Once in the Harvest Room we press the frozen bunches of grapes at up to 100 psi just to extract a few trickles of the thick and sweet juice. Because the juice is so cold and sweet we have to use aggressive yeast to start and maintain fermentation, which can take several months. The wine is sweet but is finely balanced with fruit flavours and a strong backbone of acidity. Riesling is one of the great white grape varieties with excellent aging potential. This wine is a terrific example. - Winemaker's notes

    The nose is forward and intense with aromas of spiced pear and orange zest rising atop hints of comb honey and crème brûlée.The palate is lusciously sweet with rich sultana raisin tones up front and lavish flavours of orange marmalade and fresh fig in the middle. This cornucopia of fruit is drawn through by a piercing seam of acidity to a concentrated, lingering finish of dried dates and apricots.

    Mead and honeysuckle aromas greet the nose while flavours of peach and pear candy erupt onto the palate. A pleasing citrus spice balances the wine’s sugar and is followed by a long, tantalizing caramel and pineapple finish.

    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.

    Henry Of Pelham

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 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

Grown primarily in a few choice areas of the Rhine in Germany, the origins of the Riesling grape remain a point of conjecture among wine enthusiasts. One school of thought holds that the increase in the use of this grape was due to the monks at the Cistercian monastery at Eberbach. The legend goes that the monks determined that the red grapes currently cultivated on their lands could not compete with those grown in France. To that end, they ordered the vines removed and replaced with white grape varieties. The Riesling is often cited as the white grape chosen for the new plantings. There are documents tracing the origin of the Riesling and the use in wine to the 15th century. In the log maintained by Count Katzenelnbogen at Ruesselsheim, an entry for 13 March 1435 confirms the receipt of six vines of Riesling. Today, the grape is cultivated in a number of countries around the world. Along with Germany, the grapes are found in Canada, the USA, Australia, and Austria.
