TASTING NOTE: Never underestimate the power to gift complex notions from the limestone rich shelves of the wine growing areas of the Niagara Escarpment. This special CSV Vineyard of Cave Spring brings lightning to riesling and to chardonnay, magnified under the clarity of glass, weathered finesse. In a vintage where grey clouds may have filled the sky the sun shone its yellow rays through in contest beneath them so that the chardonnay would have sparkled with frenzied good humour. The CSV fruit borrowed from this dappling and struck out for balance. Neither wood nor acidity has been able to disrupt while the long finish has sealed the deal. Drink 2017-2022.
