2019 Terroir Series Riesling

2019 Terroir Series Riesling

Our Terroir Series is a collection of small-lot, single-vineyard, single-varietal wines intended to showcase our unique growing environment here in the Annapolis Valley through a strong sense of place.

The label imagery reflects this theme and helps tell the story of the land each wine comes from. The bees, butterflies and cow horns represent our biodynamic farming practices and our philosophy of working in harmony with nature. The eye represents the human element within the whole-farm system and the role we play in terroir expression.

This Riesling is 100% estate-grown with all grapes sourced from the Lightfoot Home Farm Vineyard in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Two different picking dates helped provide aromatic intensity and flavour concentration during an ultra-cool growing season while retaining freshness and acidity. Following a 24-hour maceration on skins, fermentation was spontaneous with wild yeasts in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes

Pale gold in colour with an expressive, perfumed nose of pear, melon, honeyed citrus, and blossom notes. Lively and vibrant with bright acidity indicative of an ultra cool growing season. Will continue to evolve in bottle, only gaining in complexity and depth over time.

A versatile food-pairing wine that matches well with moderately spiced aromatic dishes, roasted poultry or pork, salty cheeses and a wide variety of seafood from lobster thermidor to smoked salmon or fresh snow crab.
