Pearl Morissette "Cuvee Sputnik" Niagara Penninsula VQA Riesling 2016

Winemaker's Notes
"2016 Cuvée Sputnik is made with 100% Riesling from Niagara-on-theLake. It was harvested on September 30th at 19.8 Brix, and it is Pearl Morissette's first foray in working with Riesling, sourced from a vineyard in this part of the Niagara peninsula. It was carefully sorted before entering the press as whole clusters without the addition of sulfur dioxide, yeast, nutrients or enzymes. Fermentation was done in a mix of concrete tanks (97%), foudres and stainless steel. The wine was aged for 8 months on primary lees in 100% concrete. Cuvée Sputnik was bottled un-fined and unfiltered on May 5th, 2017. A wine of lovely transparency and mellow, self-effacing character. Inviting, yet unintrusive with an exotic perfume of tropical flowers, spice and of fresh limes. The texture is in a state of gentle flux - rivulets of flavour swirling on the palate, then flowing through into a finish with a long kick of salinity and bright zestiness. Cuvée Sputnik can be a delightful aperitif, a thirst-quenching refreshment, or a versatile and open-minded co-traveller to a wide array of foods."
