Vintage & Viticulture

2016 will go down as one of the hottest, driest of seasons. Canopy management was very important to make sure fruit did not get sunburned and aromatic wines maintained fresh aromas and acidity. Another important factor this year was the ability to irrigate at crucial development stages of the vine which Reif Estate is capable of. Look for great reds and well balanced fruity whites.

Winemaker’s Notes

This rare varietal is only grown in a handful of vineyards in Ontario and is also known as Trollinger x Riesling. It is a unique variety that is one of the first white grapes harvested. The key with this variety is to never over-ripen the fruit. The acids in this grape are delicate and will drop dramatically once the fruit is ripe harvest date is key. This vintage is a classic example of Kerner

Tasting Notes

Aromas of fresh floral honeysuckle, soft grassy notes, peach and pear fruit with a hint of lemon citrus. On the palate, the acidity reflects the freshness and at the same time balances with the slight sweetness of the wine. Kerner displays a firm structure with the finish of peach pit bitterness. Pair with white fish, baked or fried chicken, or vegetarian quiche. Also great with roast pork or Asian cuisine.
