Niagara Peninsula Vqa Wine


The Niagara Peninsula, part of the Ontario province, is the most productive wine region in Canada. Lake Ontario is to its north, and the Niagara River is in the east, culminating at the great Niagara Falls. Most of the vineyards are situated along the Niagara Escarpment, a low mountain ridge that runs through Ontario into New York state. The Escarpment acts as a climate moderator, protecting against cold lake breezes by circulating air back to the lake. This is especially helpful to low lying areas that would normally be prone to early frost. The region has its own microclimate that differs from the rest of Canada, with good grape ripening conditions in hot summers and cold late autumns and winters that allow for natural Icewine production. 
Icewine, produced mostly from the Vidal grape, but also from Riesling, is the pride of the region and its most popular commodity, even in a sparkling version. As in Germany, Riesling is produced here in a range of styles from bone dry to Read more »

  • Stratus Charles Baker Riesling 2011


    Stewed white fruit - especially gooseberry - dominates the nose with some incipient petrol. On the palate (especially entry), there is MacIntosh apple acidity and lime. Truly delicious, this wine lacks almost for nothing - maybe just a bit more density. Otherwise, seek out and buy as much as you can find. Few Rhinegau beat this baby... one of C... Read More
