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 »

The best occasion is cre... Read More

  • Stratus Charles Baker Riesling 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Trius Winery at Hillebrand 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Here is a fresh, fruity, yet dry Rose' from a winery who excels in producing great wines. This is a blend of 56% Syrah, 31% Merlot, and 13% Cabernet Franc with all grapes being grown in the Niagara-On-The-Lake region of Canada. Fresh, refreshing, and delightful on the palate, this is a Rose' that shows off its colors and flavor with food or by i... Read More

  • Angels Gate Winery Gewürztraminer Niagara Peninsula Vqa 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This fragrant straw coloured Gerwurtz delights the nose with lychee and flowers the palate is distinctly dry and oozes oiliness. The finish remains dry and relatively long lasting. The oiliness can be off-putting and leans toward the distinctly new world Gewurtz style. Not my favourite Gerwurtz out there. If paired appropriately with spicy foods... Read More

  • Kacaba Rebecca Rose 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This delicious rose exhibits a tremendous nose of strawberries with hints of spice and a very well balanced and refreshing palate of strawberries, pink grapefruit and orange blossoms. This is the best rose I've come across in Ontario to date. The rose is produced in a unique fashion that creates a very versatile wine that goes well beyond the su... Read More
