Riesling is an Angels Gate favourite and one of our best known varietals. This noble grape is the perfect test of terroir and can act as a calling card for a region’s ability to make world class wine. The Beamsville Bench is an excellent place to cultivate this grape due to the extensive minerality found in the soil and the temperate microclimate, which helps build acidity.
Riesling can be vinified into a variety of styles and our Beamsville Bench Riesling typically sits on the drier, steelier end of the spectrum.
On the nose, this wine is ripe with citrus fruits such as lemon and lime zest. In the background, hints of pink grapefruit round off the bouquet. The palate is quite dry, but very well balanced against its acidity, which provides a refreshing finish that lingers on the palate.
Riesling is the perfect food companion because of its refreshing character. It stimulates the appetite, while cleansing the palate, making many dishes more enjoyable and flavourful. We recommend pairing this wine with white fish, poultry, cream sauces and richer dishes.

Our Angels Share Rosé, made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, is on the the drier side, a style that has grown in popularity around the world.
The nose will remind you of fresh red berries at a summer fruit stand, while the palate is crisp with hints of berries and tree fruit. Angels Share Rosé is a perfect companion to salmon, stirfry, roasted pork and chicken.
|Aging Process:||Stainless steel fermented and aged.
Fumé Blanc, a wine that is not very common, is a Sauvignon Blanc that has been aged in oak. With the acidity being that hallmark of this varietal, the oak aging allows the winemaker to create more structure and texture on the palate. On the nose, look for some tree and tropical fruit as well as hints of toast. The palate is outstanding with excellent texture and length making this a complex medium bodied wine.
