Released only in exceptional vintages, Cave Spring's Beamsville CSV is a model expression of Canadian Riesling. Perfumed, but not at all cloying, the scent of white, waxy florals and fresh lavender combine effortlessly with notes of honey and petrol on the nose. Florals and petrol persist on the palate as well, melting into sweet white grapefruit juice and a slightly saline, lime pith finish that proves exceptionally refreshing.
