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. Riesling 2010 Wine Review
The grapes for this excellent riesling were sourced from multiple vineyards in the area. The vines were cluster-thinned. There's a lovely zippy lime-fresh streak running through it, chased by lemon lightning. It finishes with notes of chives, grapefruit and the overwhelming desire for more. Riesling food pairings: fresh salads with vinaigrette dressing. Try oysters, creamy cheeses, and marinated vegetables. Also perfect for seafood dishes including shrimp, lobster, crab, and white fish.

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:
2010 gave us great Riesling in Niagara. The warm summer gave us early ripeness, with excellent acidity. This wine is an exceptional example, with a nose of mixed citrus fruit, flint minerals and soft fresh floral notes. On the palate, it is bursting with citrus and intense minerality. Lemon zest and sweet grapefruit give way to a long finish, with lingering flavour and acidity.
