Natalie's Score: 88/ 100 Floral and pretty with lovely notes of apricot blossom. Off-dry and lovely as a chilled aperitif on its own or as a companion to lighter chicken dishes as well as seafood.

Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: This Riesling has subtle petrol notes that make Ontario rieslings great, along with stone-fruit aromas and flavours. Good value here.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: I love Rieslings in the summer, they are food friendly and go well with warm evenings with friends. This is a good value Ontario version of this varietal with apple/tree-fruit, mineral and citrus flavours. On a patio by itself or with some bbq chicken kabobs, you could not go wrong.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: A nice example of a Riesling, with lots of petrol and minerality. A bit of apricot and charcoal become more apparent in the taste and the finish is brightly acidic with a touch of lemon. A nice wine with BBQ chicken, salad, or on its own.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: A light yellow with pink-toned wine that offers lush ripe peach aromas. The palate has ripe peach and apricot flavours and slight minerality. Medium-bodied with ripe peach finish. Would be great with grilled chicken shish kebabs.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: Offers honey and peach aromas and flavors with a touch of citrus on the palate.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: Aromas and flavours of slightly cooked stone and tropical fruits, such as canned peaches or pineapple. An off-dry, silky flavour. Would pair well with thai chicken curry.
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review: June 22, 2014: Pale yellow with the nose showing petrol/plastic typical of older riesling along with apple, citrus and honeyed notes. Medium light body with good acidity and a bit of residual sugar and flavours of citrus, honeydew melon and repeat of petrol/mineral on a medium finish.
Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review: Sweet nose of apricot, melon, and a touch of petrol. Slightly sweet palate with a medium-long crisp orchard fruit finish. Would pair well with a sweet and tangy bbq'd chicken. For $15 this is a fantastic wine to serve at your bbq dinners any night of the week.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review: Limey / pear / petrol minerality / racy acidity / light-bodied SUMMER IN A GLASS.
