Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 89/100
This medium-bodied white wine is wonderfully concentrated in flavour without a trace of heaviness on the weight. Here's minerality if you've been wondering what the heck that is. The quality designation for this wine is VQA. Aromas of peach, dry apricot and lime. Some kind of wonderful! Refreshing finish. Incredible value for the price.
Riesling food pairings: chicken, Asian dishes, nuts, soft cheese, shrimp skewers.
Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

A lively expression of Ontario Riesling. Pale lemon colour. Clean Medium intensity aromas of apple juice, oxidized apple, pear, blossom, petrol and duplicated on the palate.
Dry with Medium+ acidity this is a classic Ontario Riesling.
This wine has a medium+ length on a cleansing/refreshing finish.
Enjoy now, not suitable for further ageing.
I'm leading toward fatty meat appetizers ie. salami, proscuitto, Italian sausage, Bratwurst on a bun.

|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Minerality, petrol, yellow apple, apricot, and white flower dominates the scent. The taste is yellow apple, with a bit of white grapefruit. Nice fruity mouth-feel with crisp acidity. An excellent win with a plate of summer fruits, especially melon, or perhaps some soft cheeses.
I had to ask myself if Mr. Gretzky will ever find a wine to back that can score a 99?

2013 - too sweet for me. From Katie and Dave.
|Yes, this riesling is endorsed by Wayne Gretzky, but no, he's not the winemaker. This is textbook (playbook?) Ontario Riesling at a great price. - Community Wine Reviews|
