Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Slightly off-dry, lots of peach, pear, lemon-lime, and a hint of a floral note. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate, with a nice balance of ripe fruit and a hint of minerality on the palate. Medium+ acidity, with a lengthy finish. Perfect to enjoy with spicy seafood dishes.
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a drier Riesling with aromas of lemon zest, ripe peach and a hint of spice. Soft flavours of stone fruit and melon combine with light minerality and a smooth feel in the mouth. This would be great paired with some spicy Thai dishes. Tasted September 16, 2018.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is super fine. Apples, grapefruit, nectarine, lemon, lanolin, paraffin and spice. 90 Points.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Crunchy green apple aromas with hints of peach and pineapple, grassy notes, lime, and a touch of white pepper.

On the palate, it has some sweetness and is zesty with peach, pineapple and lime flavours.

Wine-Food Pairing: Spicy Thai or Indian cuisine.

Tasted September 2018
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An off-dry riesling from Ontario’s Hockley Valley. Ripe peach, orange blossom. Pairs with a baked peach crumble. Tasted 2017 vintage in Sept 2018. 88 points
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An interesting bouquet. Grown in the Hockley Hills, this award winning Riesling has many unique qualities. Aromas reveal grapefruit citrus, fresh cilantro, red bell peppers and wet stones. A specific touch of play-dough also showing through. Flavours impart elements of limeade, lemon curd, peaches and honeydew melons with cinnamon heat spice at the back. High acidity, medium (-) body with integrated fruity notes carrying into the finish. Try this with a mild green curry or Chinese food. 88 points - tasted September 2018
