2016 Riesling Cuvée Paradoxe

2016 Riesling Cuvée Paradoxe



This single vineyard Riesling was grown in the beautiful red clay soils of the Redfoot vineyard located on the Niagara Escarpment. It was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures, with an extra 8 months on fine lees that added greatly to the complexity of the wine. No malolactic fermentation.

The name “Paradoxe” was derived from its early picking date. Riesling is normally harvested mid to late October, after Chardonnay. Due to the low yield, these Riesling grapes were “paradoxally” ripe well before Chardonnay.
