Select Riesling VQA 750ml 2014

Excellent value for money

 Grange is the largest vineyard in Prince Edward County with its 60 acres of vineyards. Caroline Granger makes unpretentious, every day wines. In the vineyard, the calcium-rich limestone that easily breaks is the ideal soil composition for Riesling. The region’s cool and harsh climate is also favourable for the development of this variety. The Estate Riesling is a mineral wine with slight residual sweetness that offers outstanding value. An ideal wine to discover what Prince Edward County has to offer!

About the producer

Grange of Prince Edward

From farm to winery: a family estate’s successful conversion

The Grange of Prince Edward is a family estate founded by Caroline Granger, who recognized the potential of the soil of her native Prince Edward County farm. After more than 13 years of development, the estate now grows more than 60 acres of vineyards (24 hectares) and seven varieties of grapes on well-defined plots. The soil, Hillier Clay-Gravel with a calcium-limestone base, was once challenging for vegetable growing but is ideal for viticulture. The pebbles help retain the sun's heat and then distribute it as the evenings cool down, allowing the grapes to reach full maturity. Above all, the pebbles bring a minerality that is the mark of Prince Edward County wines.
