Natalie's Score: 89/100

From the Beamsville Bench, in the Niagara Escarpment wine region, Fielding 2017 is an estate-bottled off-dry, medium-bodied Riesling. Easy to have a glass or two at 10.3% abv. Dried apricots, lime/lemon zest aromas and petrol notes can be found on the nose. This is a balanced and zesty Riesling with ripe stone fruit, lemon curd and mandarin flavours on the palate. This vintage was awarded Gold in the 2018 All Canadian Wine Championships. Chill and enjoy on its own or with mild curries.

Riesling food pairings: roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, shrimp tempura, grilled salmon.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Beamsville Bench on the Niagara Escarpment, Fielding 2017 estate-bottled Riesling is super juice on steroids with balanced sweetness and acidity and made for rich seafood dishes and Thai food. The Riesling is medium-bodied, off-dry and at 10.3% abv, you can enjoy a glass or two. On the nose, there are dried fruit, lime and petrol notes. On the palate, the wine is fresh with ripe peach, lemon custard and soft orange flavours. This vintage was awarded Gold in the 2018 All Canadian Wine Championships. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
