Natalie's Score: 90/100

A crowd pleaser and favourite, 13Th Street, June's Vineyard is floral with honey, beeswax aromas on the nose, liquid lemon sunshine, ripe peach, apricot and flinty mineral flavours on the palate. Easy to enjoy now with schnitzels and salads, or hold for three years in cellar just to see how it develops.

Riesling food pairings: smoked salmon on baguette, mild curries, seafood salad.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Great aromatic concentration with plenty of green apple and peach followed by apricot, lemon, and honey. June's Vineyard is planted with Riesling clone 49, an old Alsatian clone, and is planted inland from the lake, featuring a mix of sand, clay, and limestone soils. This terroir adds pleasant minerality to the fruity and dry palate. The first hint of petrol appears in the finish, reflecting the hot summer of 2018. Try with pork rouladen.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

13th Street Winery's June's Vineyard Riesling, made from Alsatian old Clone 49 Riesling, shows a delicate yet complex bouquet of fresh stone fruit, floral blossom, wild flower honey, petrol, and steely limestone minerality. The palate is crisp and linear with a slight sweetness showing up on the mid palate. The finish showcases the racy acidity with fresh stone fruit and mineral persisting. Very versatile, this beautiful Ontario Riesling is a fantastic choice for just about anything you can imagine from appetizers, spicy Asian cuisine, Thanksgiving meals, Octoberfest dishes, or creamy cheeses - each delicious with this value-priced wine. Tasted August 2019. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Beautifully bright and balanced with white florals, honey and petrol aromas 13Th Street June's Vineyard 2018 Riesling is a zesty, medium-bodied Riesling with juicy lemon, ripe peach flavours and a clean mineral finish. Chill and enjoy with grilled pork chops or a pork tenderloin Wellington. - Community Wine Reviews
