Reviews and Ratings

Trent Mayers rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

An excellent sweet late harvest wine sourced from their Lincoln Lakeshore Vineyard. The grapes are left on the vine to air dry and increase their sugar content; the wine term for this process is passerillage. Mouth filling apricots and honey with a balancing lemony acidity and just a suggestion of hay here. It would make an outstanding accompaniment for panna cotta with honeyed apricots, foie gras, or blue veined cheeses.
4.5 stars out of 5
From Lincoln Lakeshore, Niagara Peninsula wine region Cave Spring Indian Summer 2017 Late Harvest Riesling is just sweet enough to enjoy chilled on its own or with fruit-based desserts or creamy blue cheeses. Look for dried florals and ripe stone-fruit flavours on the palate balanced with vibrant acidity. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
