Autumn Gold 2018

Our Secret Blend of Deliciousness

One of Canada’s most popular white blends, Autumn Gold is equal parts Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Blanc. This is a clean, crisp, white wine that carries aromas of orchard fruit, spiced apple and citrus. The soft and round palate will taste spice, candied ginger, and a hint of rose balanced with crisp acidity. The amazing fruit makes it the perfect wine to have on the patio with lots of family and friends, or at traditional festive gatherings where you are roasting a big bird!

Riesling 2018

A Wild Goose “Classic” Circa 1984

 

This fruit forward Riesling comes from Estate grown grapes, including the 35 year old Wild Goose Vineyards, and the 13 year old Secrest Vineyards. Careful vineyard management and hand harvesting allows the wine to express not only the vine’s age but also the unique soil in which they grow. This wine can be cellared for 5-10 years, peaking around 3-5 years. Sweet reserve is added to balance the refreshing racy acidity, a “classic” method of winemaking. The nose shows aromas of floral, spice and apricot, while flavours of minerality and citrus follow.
