About This Wine
The name ‘Dolomite’ refers to the type of limestone that forms the crest of the Niagara Escarpment. Through the forces of erosion, this ancient rock has come to enrich the soils of the hillsides below. Grown along these gentle slopes in our Beamsville Bench vineyard, this Riesling bears the mark of its origins. The calcareous clays of these sites contribute the intense aromatic and mineral textures that are its signature.
Colour Pale straw. Nose Aromas of grapefruit, comb honey, white flowers and gun flint; underlying notes of yellow plum, anise, ginger spice. Palate Dry and medium bodied, with a rich feel up front; in the middle, creamy edges surround the wine's well-extracted citrus fruit, stony textures and saline nuances; a seamlessly integrated seam of acidity brings lustre throughout, carrying intense white peach and quince fruit and autumn spice nuances long onto the finish.
