Reviews and Ratings

Jason Solanki rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Aromas of minerals, lemon, and floral. Lovely mineral notes, lemon rind, orange, citrus on the palate. Medium dry. Made in a German-style Riesling. Good acidity that allows it to be paired well with food. I greatly enjoyed this with soya sauce lamb chops, butterflied panko shrimp, and wings from All-Stars. Tasted Nov/2011. Score: 91 pts

Apricot/peach, petrol with some zesty orange aromas. Nice aroma replays on palate, but with some slight tartness on the finish. Lip-smacking acidity. Tasted Sept/2012. Score: 90 pts
Beverly Crandon rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

On colour, Sketches Riesling 2010 from Tawse Winery holds a clear pale straw hue with hints of green. On the nose, scents of lemon, apricot, some minerality, and spice are present; a truly interesting and complex experience. On the palate, citrus notes continue as both lemon and clementines are noted, along with pear and well tempered acidity.
Ryan Hindmarsh rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great Riesling from one of my favorite Ontario producers. Like Phil Collins having a juice box while doing your morning yard work. This wine smells like apple juice, fresh raked leaves and it will quickly recede in your mouth like his hairline did. I can feel this coming in the air tonight with spicy sweet potato soup… oh Lord, oh Lord.
Pale lemon, almost platinum in colour with aromas of pear, spice, lemon rind, mineral and a floral element. Off-dry and fairly fruity, but also immediately freshened up with laser-precise acidity. Lots of citrus and mineral tones at play too. Mosel style meets a warm Ontario vintage. Cellar it 2-4 years, or enjoy it tonight. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.

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.
