Description

Tawse Winery Limestone Sparkling Riesling 2017

From Tawse, one of the most exciting names in Ontario winemaking, this single-vineyard expression is a complex and intense wine that delivers amazing value. This is the sixth vintage of Sparkling Riesling from the certified Organic and Biodynamic Limestone Ridge Vineyard.

Their Spark Rieslings from the north block of the certified Organic and Biodynamic Limestone Ridge Vineyard, are very popular amongst Tawse fans, and this 2017 Sparkling Riesling is no exception! Made in the traditional method, this wine spent 12 months on the lees which has resulted in a creamy mousse and mouthfeel. The nose has infatuating aromas of peach, honeysuckle, and biscotti. The palate is off dry and crisp, with bursting flavours of granny smith apple, orange zest, and lemon meringue pie.

Harvested from end September to almost end of October. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, leaf thinning and hand-harvesting.

Sparkling wines naturally have more of an acidic profile, which makes them incredibly food friendly. This 2017 Spark Riesling pairs beautifully with saltier and fattier dishes, like fried vegetable spring rolls, or triple cream brie. Of course a wine as flavourful and enjoyable as this one is also perfect all on its own, just add friends.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

91 points – David Lawrason, WineAlign

“Spark is a traditional method riesling from organically grown grapes high on the Escarpment in Twenty Mile Bench. There is light toast on the nose along with typical riesling green apple and lemon. It’s light bodied (11.5%) with taut, racy, mouthwatering acidity rounded just a bit by a hint of sweetness. Energetic mousse adds to the cleansing and scouring effect, and it ends with a mineral note. The length is excellent. Don’t over-chill, and brace yourself. Very good value.”
