A spectacular Riesling founded by one of Niagara's best producers Tawse. This is the first Redstone Riesling release from the south block of the Limestone Vineyard, a 14-year-old sustainably farmed block on Twenty Mile Bench. The 2012 vintage was warm and it shows in the pure fruit intensity and laser focus of this wine: white peach, lime zest and a deep core of minerality. I am thrilled with this first effort from Redstone, and anxiously look forward to future vintages. Cheers!

Riesling food pairings: scallop ceviche, white fish with mango salsa, salt and pepper shrimp skewers.

In a warm growing season like 2012, Riesling reached optimal ripeness and exceptional intensity. Lively acidity, sought after to balance the ripe aromatic profile, was ensured by harvesting early.

The nose is intense, dominated by aromatic notes of lime zest and candied orange with a hint of honeysuckle. Citrus notes replay on the palate- think pink grapefruit and lemon curd- balanced by a touch of Asian pear and flinty minerality.
