A delicate, light-bodied, off-dry Riesling with aromas of pear and peach. This would be great with dishes that have a glaze or chutney.
Riesling food pairings: appetizers, Spicy Thai, Middle Eastern, Mexican dishes, fresh salads.

Pale yellow color!
Notes of spice, dill, mushroom and honey.
The acidity is nerve, The style is refined and the body is complex.
Serve it at 8-10 degrees.
Pair it with a good piece of salmon with lemon and dill.
Ready to drink but can be aged up to 4-5 years.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Wildflower honey and peach, pear and apple fruits. Beautiful bright acidity that isn't expected with the sweet aromas. Great balanced wine with a complex honey finish. Would pair great with a glazed pork tenderloin.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A lively example of Ontario Riesling. Off-dry and light-bodied with succulent aromas and flavours of apples, apple crisp, vanilla, sweet spices, honey. Slight petrol and refreshing acidity reminds me this is Riesling. Length is long with a creamy finish.
Pair with Asian dishes,hot chicken wings, sausage, BBQ potato chips!!!
Serve well chilled.
Tasted: August 2014
|Irina Omari rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Good wine. I like my Riesling very dry ( and generally most of my wines) so this one was a different experience. A touch of sweetness make it easier to enjoy as the acidity does not hit you straight away. Instead you get notes of Apple, pear, and surprisingly a bit of honey. On top of that lovely flower and herbal notes. Should be very chilled and then it would be a wonderful addition to summer wine list.
|Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:|
Apple, honey and a bit of citrus on the nose. Some residual sugar on the palate but well balanced by crisp acidity. Medium body. Long finish but acidity point a little bit high at time of tasting. Needs a couple of years, has the backbone required to age.
