From Vinemount Ridge, Niagara Peninsula wine region, Charles Baker Picone Vineyard 2017 Riesling is produced by Straus Vineyards and is a classic Niagara Riesling, mouth-watering with lime-lemon zest and tropical fruit flavours with a whiff of petrol aromas on the nose. Silky and zesty. - 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.
