Benjamin Bridge Riesling 2016
This product is currently sold out.
Handcrafted from 100% Riesling grown along the Bay of Fundy, this vintage displays the signature brightness of our maritime terroir, as well as a dense and lively structure.
Following BB Club small lots from ‘12, ‘13, and ‘14 this Riesling marks the first commercial iteration. The wine displays high acidity and powerful aromatics, which perfectly parallel the quinessential elements of Benjamin Bridge's white wines. Taken from three distinct vineyard sites along the Bay of Fundy, each lot comes from it’s own microclimate with soils ranging from gravel and clay, to deep sandy loam. To accentuate the singular yet unifying qualities specific to these sites, the wines were wild fermented, relying on indigenous yeast strains from the unique sites to allow for the natural expression of each vineyard.
Serve chilled. Enjoy with seafood or savour on its own.
TASTING NOTES, 2015 RIESLING
“In the glass, a pale yellow with emerald hues. On the elegant nose, citrus fruit notes and exotic aromas abound, combined with wet stone and honeycomb notes. The palate is flavourful and rich excellent length for a wine with such a delicate structure. A saline finale is provided by our unique coastal terroir.”
Head Winemaker Jean-Benoit Deslauriers
