CASE SALE – $99 for 12 Late Harvest Riesling SAVE $141

$240.00 $99.00

CASE SALE – 12 bottles of Select Late Harvest Riesling for only $99. the Select Late Harvest Riesling is a superb example of Canadian dessert wine. Made in the harsh winters of Niagara, harvested at below -8C. Try this wine this holiday season and celebrate the bounty of Canada.

Concentrated without being overwhelming, this vintage showcases primary aromatics rooted in tropical fruits (lychee, mango, and pineapple juice), while introducing floral complexity in the form of honeysuckle. Secondary aromatic include subtle nods toward autolytic character in the form of sweet biscuit, to round off a structured nose. The palate mirrors the nose, but also showcases notes of cantaloupe, honeydew melon and sultana raisins, bringing to attention balanced acid. The finish is lengthier and complex, due to slight malolactic fermentation, and allows this full-bodied wine to develop whilst being enjoyed, alluding to progressive complexity. When pairing, attempt to balance the organics of this wine, by driving sweetness down, and exaggerating acidity. As such, foods that are spicy (Sicilian chicken roasted over dried chilies), savory (wild mushroom and beef stroganoff) or sweet (peach cobbler or pineapple and mango cheesecake) do well to bring equilibrium to the pairing.
