Reif Estate Winery
VINTAGE & VITICULTURE
While the season began with a wet cool spring, summer brought typical temperatures across Ontario. July was particularly warm and sunny with intense heat waves and high humidity. Early-ripening grape varieties escaped the wild weather of late fall and the unusual early cold snap in November. Harvest extended into early December, sometimes taking place in the snow.
A unique blend of 3 clones, 2 Germanic and 1 French Alsatian, giving our Riesling a distinct style and texture. Selected yeast strains are used for slow cool fermentation (12 degrees C) allowing maximum aromatic expression.
Fresh aromas of peach and pear and apple and lemon citrus. Light sweetness of fruit with a balanced acidity. A food-friendly wine very popular wine for entertaining. Pair with fish, seafood, poultry, pork and stir-fry’s or curries.
