This is sourced from some of the oldest Riesling vines in Ontario; they were planted in the vineyard's limestone soils in the '70s. It is one of the great go-to wines for people wishing to experience the very best of Niagara Riesling. You will find pear, peach, lime and apple here, alongside a remarkable pure minerality. This wine is always an expressive benchmark for quality and provenance, and every vintage is a new declaration of refinement and harmony. Price $ 29.95
