Natalie's Score: 90/100

Yes! Apricot and honeysuckle aromas waft from the glass in a lovely profusion for the senses. There's a touch of sweetness but not too much and it's in balance with the backbone of refreshing acidity, making it an ideal companion for many dishes.

Riesling food pairings: Asian fusion cuisine, Thai curry dishes, turkey, glazed ham, light pasta dishes, luscious lobster and crab, glazed pork tenderloin, sushi.

James Belardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

For me, one of the summer's perfect light wines is Inniskillen's Late Autumn Riesling. It is a fantastic complement to light meals such as salads, fish or chicken. I usually prefer deep and tannic red wines from places like France and Italy but I tend to gravitate towards the German-style whites during the summer. Inniskillin's Late Autumn Riesling has become one of my 'go to' wines as I have found it to be refreshing and consistent.

Visit our gastronomic grotto, The Grape Gourmet (http://grapegourmet.wordpress.com) for recipes and stories of our culinary adventures.
Grapes were harvested in lat October from vineyards throughout the Niagara Peninsula; fermented at a cool temperatures in stainlesss steel tanks preserving the fresh fruit characteristics; fementation stopped at 23 g/l and balanced with its natural acidity. Citrus and ripe apple aromas dominate the nose; the touch of sweetness provides a soft, round mouthfeel with tropical and citrus flavours; clean dry finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
