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 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.

What is Fume Blanc? Well, Fume Blanc is Sauvignon Blanc with the addition of some oak aging. The key to the perfect Fume is to ensure that the balance between the fruit and the barrel texture is spot on. Acidity is a hallmark of this varietal and by adding in that oak aging the winemaker creates more structure and texture on the palate. This wine fits neatly between Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.
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.
This wine pairs well with poultry, fish, pork loin, summer salads and stir-fry.

Muscat is a relatively new varietal to the Angels Gate family. This grape varietal is often classed as one of the aromatic whites sitting next to the likes of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer. But much like Gewurztraminer it has a distinct bouquet that is easily identifiable. Often one would find some of the typical citrus or tree fruit characteristic common with this style of white wine but it is elegantly weaved in with a wonderful floral note. This floral character is usually a dead give away for Muscat.
Our example is a very classic style offering great complexity in a mid weight aromatic superstar. Your taste buds will also be treated to a little more residual sugar as this wine comes in at about 30 g/L.
This wine is not only a great summer sipper but pairs well with a whole host of dishes. Try out a little roasted chicken, pan fried fish, pulled pork or stir-fry.
Sauvignon Blanc is such an interesting grape varietal and can be vinified into several different styles. At Angels Gate, the house style is to maximize on the fruit character of the wine while maintaining that racy acidity. The acidity is a hallmark of this varietal and creates structure and finesse. This wine fits neatly between Unoaked Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.
On the nose, look for that lemon zest and a hint of grapefruit. One might also find some classic grassy notes or a herbal quality. Enjoy this Sauvignon Blanc with your favourite fish recipe and you won't be disappointed.
