Fogolar Wines 2019 Hughes Vineyard Riesling

$19.95

This single-vineyard Riesling showcases the unique terroir of the Hughes Vineyard, situated less than 1km from Lake Ontario in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation. Bright aromas of starfruit, Gala apples, white flower, and candied peaches. Light with a mild sweetness and juicy acidity.

Winemaking Notes:

Handpicked and destemmed before being gently pressed. Started fermentation with non- Saccharomyces species before being inoculated with select Saccharomyces yeast strains. Fermentation was arrested partway through fermentation to preserve a large portion of residual sugar and to lock in aromatic intensity.

Such a different profile than the Hanck Vineyard [Riesling]; this is from the warmer Hughes Vineyard in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-app with hand-picked and whole-cluster-pressed fruit. Stopped fermentation at 26 g/l of RS with only 9% abv; this is much more primary fruit-laden with riper notes of peach, apple, citrus, nectarine and ginger. It’s juicy on the palate with sweet peach, Mandarin orange, ripe apple, lemon, ginger and nicely balanced between sweet and tart fruit. A nice side-by-side comparison of Niagara Rieslings from both sides of the canal.
