|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
From Limestone Ridge, Tawse’s newest estate vineyard comes this pretty aromatic sparkler. Crafted with hand-harvested Riesling grapes in the Méthode Traditionnelle, it displays great complexity imparted by bottle-fermentation. Bright with crisp acidity, it’s bursting with aromas and flavours of green apples, lime and lemon drops with a touch of minerality. Soft and persistent mousse with clean and lasting lemon-hued finish. Perfect on its own. Beautifully pairs with crab cakes and grilled seafood. Tasted June 2016/91 points.

Can you say "acidity"? Very zesty sparkling. No doubting the lemony notes throughout the mouth. Some mineral and flint on the finish. A bag of potato chips, a good movie and this wine. Yes please!
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This traditionally made sparkling should be popular with the Prosecco crowd. It is lithe and light. It comes from one of the most respected premium wine producers in the Niagara region.
Riesling is a wonderful grape for aromatics and acidity - a smart match for sparkling, which demands both.
Pale straw coloured, with fairly persistent small bubbles. Aromas of cut hay, honey, guava, and apple juice.
There's lots of minerality here, with flavours of chalk dust, lemon juice, lime, citrus zest, light brioche, pistacio, and honey.
Makes a great pairing with white fish or an arugula based salad with goat cheese.
