Reviews and Ratings

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

Perfect for a warm summer afternoon. This is a fuller bodied Riesling, with aromas of white floral, lemon-lime, and a hint of wet stone. Medium bodied, dry with a hint of honeyed sweetness, vibrant acidity and citrus on the palate, and a smooth finish with a hint of minerality. Great balance, lots of flavour, perfect to enjoy as a summer sipper or with mild seafood or shellfish dishes.
From Four Mile Creek, Niagara-On-The-Lake wine region, Ferox Phantom 2017 Riesling is delightful with a soft citrus spritz on the palate. Fragrant with key-lime zest, petrol and white floral aromas on the nose. Dry, medium-bodied, fresh with bright apple, ripe stone fruit, tropical fruit and lemon zest flavours on the palate. Chill it up and enjoy. - Community Wine Reviews
