Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer KEW VINEYARDS
Here is the most recent 2019 edition of this well-priced dry organic sparkling Riesling that was released in Vintages last April. It just appeared out of nowhere with no LCBO announcement whatsoever. It has the best distribution ever in some 250 stores and makes for a perfect relaxing, versatile, holiday sparkling sipper.
Bright pale straw colour with beads of tiny bubbles. Attractive, fairly spicy, very fresh, ripe apple-lemon-melon nose with some mineral notes. Dry, medium to medium-light bodied, slightly spicy, very fresh, ripe, apple-lemon flavours with a lingering, crisp, mineral-tinged, gently effervescent finish. Ready-to-drink. This tasty organic Riesling has 11% alcohol and about 8 g/L residual sugar. it comes with a crown capsule and although made in the Method Classique, it has only six months on the lees along with a slightly lower 5 atmospheres of pressure.

This former Vintages release is now available in some 250 stores. Some of Niagara's first riesling vines were planted on the historic 80 acre Kew estate. This elegant sparkler is crafted from organic riesling, and it is brimming with ripe apple and zesty lime flavours. The delicate effervescence refreshes the palate and leads to a silky-smooth finish. Pair with fish tacos or light salads. Price $ 19.95
