Riesling, a cool-climate grape is perfectly suited to be grown and produced here in the Niagara Region.
Kacaba Winemaker John Tummon has the philosophy that the Reserve Riesling should have minimal handling. This minimal approach starts in the vineyard with hand harvesting to assure quality of fruit. Next all grapes undergo a gentle whole bunch pressing, all which happens within minutes of the grapes being picked. Next the juice is cold settled in stainless steel tanks then racked away from its solids and inoculated with select yeast. Following fermentation, the wine is allowed to settle at cold temperatures to aid clarification before filtering and bottling. This is wine in its purest form – elegant and stylish – from the vine to the glass.
This wine makes a wonderful aperitif and will complement oysters and sorbets. A favourite is char-grilled octopus or a more delicate sashimi.
Alluring and exotic with notes of ripened peach, mango and fresh lime. An explosion of flavour with fresh balanced acidity a truly impressive wine.
