2018 Riesling

Sand & Gravel

The goal with making most Riesling is to find a balance between the acidity and sweetness. We believe that we did that with this wine. It is slightly off-dry to match up with some zippy acidity. We think it is a great version of a signature Niagara wine.

Tasting Note: This wine is lighter in colour. It is showing aromas of white peach, pineapple and ripe apricots. In the mouth it is off-dry but doesn’t taste too sweet. It offers some refreshing acidity to stop that overly sweet feeling. On the finish it shows nice, subtle peachy flavours.
Food Pairing: Our S&G Riesling would match very well with pork tenderloin in an apple sauce. It would also be great with a grilled peach salad with fresh basil.
