Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7. Tawse Winery Inc. Quarry Road Riesling 2011 Wine Review
This organic and biodynamic wine is superb! The vines were grown on a limestone base and the wine shows an incredible mineral depth. Joyous aromas of lime and white peach leap from the glass. Mouth-watering and endlessly delicious. Food matches: salads, shrimp and oysters, creamy cheeses, and marinated vegetables. Also perfect for seafood dishes including lobster, shrimp, crab, and white fish. Pasta tossed with olive oil, fresh herbs, and grilled seafoods. Riesling food pairings: seafood platter, pan fried white fish, seafood salad, raw oysters, creamy cheeses. This Tawse Winery Inc. Quarry Road Riesling 2011 was reviewed by October 31, 2012 Natalie MacLean

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
The 2011 Quarry Road Vineyard Riesling continues in the tradition of the vineyard, yielding steely and mineral reisling of outstanding character. This riesling speaks to the nose with intense citrus fruit, including juicy ripe grapefruit and hints of lime zest. Limestone minerality is detectable. On the palate it is dry, with lucious, ripe citrus and mouth watering acidity. Great length featuring lingering fruit, citrus zest, and minerality.
