Natalie's Score: 92/100

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.

Produced by Tawse Winery from the Limestone Vineyard South, this off-dry Niagara Riesling features peach and pear notes.Lovely aromas of peach, pear and petrol on the nose of this medium-bodied, slightly sweet Riesling. Gorgeous concentration of flavour and minerality. Long finish. Pair with seafood.

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.
