Heather Wall Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

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.

Wayne Gretzky Estates No.99 Riesling 2012 is a beautiful wine on the nose and pleasing on the palate. Apple, peach and floral aromas that carry through to the mouth. Nice long finish. (89/100) Tasted on July 14, 2014
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Very good example of an Ontario Riesling, Dry long lasting flavours of citrus, apple, and plastic pool toy (yup, I said that).
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?
