Fielding ‘Estate Bottled’ Riesling 2016
VQA Beamsville Bench, Niagara Escarpment $19.95 (251439) 10.8% alcohol
The price-quality balance tips wildly in your favour here. Petrol, mineral and citrus aromas waft from this beautiful, fruit-driven gem. A river of ripe orchard fruit—pear and apple—intertwine with racy tang—white grapefruit, Key lime and soft Meyer lemon—providing a balanced and beautiful mouthful of flavour. This is mid weight with good texture and a long, lip-smacking finish and aftertaste. Pour with grilled or pan-seared fish or seafood. (Vic Harradine
Light straw in colour with lifted, fruit-driven aromatics of lime, pink grapefruit and orange peel. Slightly off-dry with great acidity and a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel.
Sourced from four separate vineyard blocks within our Beamsville Bench vineyard. Grapes were gently pressed, settled, and fermented at cold temperature in stainless steel. After fermentation the individual blocks were selected and combined, cold stabilized, sterile filtered and bottled.
