A racy, vibrant Riesling with aromas of white peach, lime zest, chives and green apples. Such a versatile food wine but I think I’ll just drink it straight for the pure, unadulterated pleasure.

Here is an exciting white that speaks to the calibre of the 2008 vintage in Niagara and the emerging style of Hidden Bench Vineyards. Easily the most approachable of the recent crop of Hidden Bench Rieslings, this dry white reveals a fruity/honeyed flavour profile that finishes with an extremely crisp acidic finish. Less assertive than Hidden Bench’s house style, this manages to strike an agreeable balance between zesty citrus fruit, minerality and pervasive acidity. It sets the stage nicely for the forthcoming 2008 single vineyard and Old Vines Riesling bottlings to be released in 2010. Score: 4 (out of 5) Source: Christopher Waters, The Ottawa Sun
