Natalie's Score: 90/100

This off-dry Niagara Riesling has superb balance and is packed with fresh ripe peach and lime blossom flavour. Racy acidity meets natural fruit sweetness to make this the ultimate wine for spicy and Asian dishes. Great price.

Riesling food pairings: pan-fried salmon or shellfish; boiled lobster or crabmeat; curried shrimp; buttered chicken; Bavarian-style sausage (weisswurst); barbecue pork; baked ham; breaded veal; roasted poultry and game; as an aperitif..

Reviews and Ratings

On the nose, scents of white flowers, wet stone, and cantaloupe emerge over top hints of black licorice and fresh herbs. The palate is medium dry with concentrated pink grapefruit and mandarin orange on the attack, giving way to yellow cherry fruit on the mid-palate. The finish is very persistent, with notes of crushed stone, spice and citrus zest. The long, cool ripening of this vintage has delivered remarkable flavour complexity and a seamless integration of body and acidity on the palate.
