2016 Nadja's Vineyard Riesling
Nadja's Vineyard Riesling was planted in 2001, in shallow soils that lay atop thick limestone on the edge of the escarpement. This is our iconic Riesling and highlights the citrus and chalky notes that are typical of this vineyard. Hand-picked, whole cluster pressed and a cool, slow fermentation provide the more pure expression. Fermentation is halted to balance out the racy acidity with some natural sweetness from the Riesling juice. The wine is bottled in the spring to capture the freshness of Riesling flavours.
Tasting NotesThis bottling is the definition of minerality our vineyard is known for. Chalky, salty and yet rich with ripe summer fruit. It's in the realm of pears and yellow melon with a little bit on honeysuckle dancing on the nose. The palate is dry and richly-textured, but it retains its buoyant acidity like not a day has passed.
