Natalie's Score: 91/100

Truly one of Niagara’s riesling masters. This incredible white is packed with flavour: bursting at the seams! Yet it’s also incredibly refined and ephemeral. Angel juice. Lots of minerality through the core and a laser-like focus on fruit purity, especially lime and lemon. I love that it's low alcohol yet packed with flavour. A spectacularly vibrant wine that bursts from the glass with lime blossom, lemon zest, white flowers and green apple. Try this lovely white with fresh seafood, shellfish, roast chicken or turkey.

Riesling food pairings: shrimp tempura, grilled salmon with lemon sauce, duck liver pate, eggs benedict, planked salmon.

Scrumptious Seafood Wine

Lori Kilmartin rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

If you can only bring one wine with you to a deserted island - this is it! Light enough to drink at any time of the day, it has a fine balance of acidity and sugar that will pair with everything from appetizers to the main course to dessert. On the nose the minerality and citrus aromas shine and these follow through in a lingering finish on the palate. I had the pleasure of tasting this in the Vineland tasting room in Niagara - an impressive wine in an impressive location!
