Reif Winery River Road Gewurztraminer Riesling 2018

River Road Gewurztraminer Riesling 2018

VQA Niagara River


Vintage & Viticulture

It’s a special place where the mighty Niagara River meets the long gentle easterly slopes of our vineyard. A favoured place where tender grape varieties thrive in sunlight and warmth. Temperate breezes ward off early spring and late fall frosts drawing cold air away from the vines and into the river gorge allowing fruit to fully ripen.

Winemaker’s Notes

The soils, developed on the bedrock of the Queenston Formation forged over 400 million years ago are red shale with a high silt and clay content encouraging vines to grow deep, establish wide root systems, and devote all their energy to fruit production. A place gifted to our winemaker by Mother Nature in the heart of Niagara’s Wine Country.

Tasting Notes

Straw colour with fresh citrus, lychee and spice aromas and flavours. A crisp balanced, refreshing wine. A crisp balanced, refreshing wine, perfect to partner with shrimp, sushi, curries and vegetarian cuisine.
