Natalie's Score: 91/100

The grapes for this excellent riesling were sourced from multiple vineyards in the area. The vines were cluster-thinned. There's a lovely zippy lime-fresh streak running through it, chased by lemon lightning. It finishes with notes of chives, grapefruit and the overwhelming desire for more.

Riesling food pairings: fresh salads with vinaigrette dressing. Try oysters, creamy cheeses, and marinated vegetables. Also perfect for seafood dishes including shrimp, lobster, crab, and white fish.

Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

I had heard a lot about this Riesling and finally had it at Labarake, the new restaurant opened in the old fire station in the Angus Shops in East Montreal. I started my evening with a glass of this wine from the Tawse winery in Niagara and paired it with a spinach salad with strawberries, oranges and almonds. Great choice for the summer with nice flavours of pear and apple.
2010 gave us great Riesling in Niagara. The warm summer gave us early ripeness, with excellent acidity. This wine is an exceptional example, with a nose of mixed citrus fruit, flint minerals and soft fresh floral notes. On the palate, it is bursting with citrus and intense minerality. Lemon zest and sweet grapefruit give way to a long finish, with lingering flavour and acidity.
