It was almost like, “Watson, come here. I need you.” After placing the receiver back in the cradle I dashed down two flights of stairs to find our winemaker Brian in the lab with two wine glasses and a bottle. “I think pouring a bit for each of us would be in order,” he said with a very broad grin. It was the 2019 Elevation Riesling just bottled. As I swirled and sipped this newest Vineland Estates giant, I was overtaken by its complexity, depth and breadth of taste. Brian saw “the look” in my eyes. He leaned forward and almost whispered not wanting to break the moment, “7.5% alcohol. This wine will live forever.” He is so right. The resultant low alcohol concentration of acidity plus the balanced harvest sugars make for perfect aging conditions. The hallmark lemon-lime zest, white peach, clover honey and sigh of wet shale amongst many other notes will fold continuously creating an ever growing and changing story in the bottle.

Vineland Estates ‘Elevation – St. Urban Vineyard’ Riesling 2019
VQA Niagara Escarpment $19.95 (38117) 7.5% alcohol
Delicate aromas of citrus, floral and pear transition to a balanced-on-a-pin river of gorgeous flavour that on entry to the palate showcases lime, green apple and wisps of honey infused ripe pear. It persists through the lingering finish and aftertaste enhanced by herbal notes, tart tang and lip-smacking acidity. It showcases nerve and verve with pizzazz and plenty of charm. You shouldn’t go wrong in drinking this over the next 8 or so years. Try with white pizza on spice-oiled dough lightly adorned with cheese—brie, chèvre and extra-old cheddar—decorated with basil and sliced mushrooms and sprinkled with grated parmigiana reggiano.
