Tawse Wine & Spirits is a family-owned organic winery and distillery situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment. Founder Moray Tawse, inspired by his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, purchased 6 acres on the Cherry Avenue property in 2001, and in 2005 he opened his state-of-the-art winery complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system, and a wetland bio-filter. Since then, Tawse has become a four-time winner of the Canadian Winery of the Year award and grows grapes in five estate vineyards on over 100 acres across the Niagara region.
Tawse is focused on uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, and dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
This is consistently a great value for Niagara Riesling. It is a fresh and vibrant white, with floral notes, fresh figs, light smoke and pear notes. The palate has a subtle gentle sweetness that balances its zesty acidity and a long, intense finish. Pair it with grilled fish, pork sausages or foods with a spicy kick.
This Riesling is crafted from carefully sourced hand-harvested fruit from select vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula. As such, it is a wonderful expression of both terroir and vintage as well as a great value wine. The juice is fermented in stainless steel and the final wine retains some residual sugar to balance the grape’s naturally high acidity levels.
Riesling is so versatile and equally delicious. This example from Niagara’s Tawse has a dollop of limey citrus flavours and holds it’s sweetness in check. Perfect with spicy fish or chicken dishes.
