Varietal: Riesling
Undervalued and frequently mispronounced it offers a wealth of highly aromatic and diverse styles of white wine. Riesling can vary from bone dry, all the way through to lusciously sweet Beerenauslese (BA) and Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA). Its ability to age and transmit the terroir of the vineyard without losing its individual character places it amongst the most noble and academic of grape varieties. Germany is seen as Riesling's Old World home with the greatest concentration in the Mosel Valley, however, plantings have steadily increased across the border in the region of Alsace, France. Most Alsation Rieslings tend to be on the drier side. Even though some Grand Crus contain more sugar, they are still very refreshing and appetizing, due to a high level of acidity.

Country: Canada
In an environment that would appear to be viticulturally inhospitable exists a flourishing industry. With most of the business centred in Ontario in the east and British Columbia in the west proximity to large bodies of water is crucial in tempering the harsh winters and damaging spring frosts. While plantings of French hybrids such as Vidal Blanc took off in the 1970s producers are now experiencing success with a range of vinifera varieties including Riesling, capable of course of making exceptional ice wines, and Chardonnay. Some warmer sites are even growing Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon in warmer vintages.

Type: Fortified and Dessert
Dessert wines are usually any sweet wine drunk with or around a meal. White fortified wines (fino and amontillado sherry) are usually drunk before the meal, and the red fortified wines (port and madeira) drunk after it. Most fortified wines are regarded as distinct from dessert wines, but some of the less strong fortified white wines, are regarded as honorary dessert wines. In the United States a dessert wine is legally defined as any wine over 14% alcohol by volume, which includes all fortified wines.
