A lovely, floral, aromatic, refreshing Niagara white wine made from the classic Riesling grape. Aromas of white peach and apricot. Love the low alcohol here. Pair with fresh seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely peach, citrus and mineral nose; palate shows bright grapefruit, peach balanced with slight mineral/petrol. Food-friendly acidity and lingering citrus finish. Low-alcohol makes this a perfect brunch wine.
Tasted April 2018
Creekside Marianne Hill 2016 is a barely off-dry, aromatic and floral Riesling with grapes sourced from the Marianne Hill Vineyard, Beamsville Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region. Lower in alcohol at 10.5% abv, this is such an easy Riesling to enjoy. Look for honey, ripe stonefruit, flint and a zesty lime finish. The Beamsville Bench continues to impress with the superb quality and elegance of the Riesling crafted here. Riesling loves the region's dolomitic limestone soils, which impart a remarkably pure mineral undertone to the wines. Pair with spicy long ribs or mild curries. - Community Wine Reviews
