This lovely off-dry Niagara Riesling is bursting with aromas of fresh citrus, lime and green apple. two weeks later than the parcel below the winery. Although the 2013 vintage in Niagara was a cool one, which benefited white wines, especially Riesling. Remarkable, even though there are 18 grams of sugar in this wine, the acidity balances it perfectly, yielding only a slight impression of sweetness. Terrific mouth-watering acidity for seafood and salads.

Riesling food pairings: grilled chicken with lemongrass stalk, spicy pasta dishes, Feta cheese, butternut squash risotto, duck liver pate.

Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This reminds me - once again - why I just love Ontario Riesling. Well made, it simply shines.

On the palate, lemon zest, hint of lime, tart green herbs, hard white peach. Medium-plus body, there's something to chew on here. Final finish is lip-smacking lime. Nice hint of residual sugar on the finish, this wine is beautifully balanced and only slightly off-dry.

Would absolutely put a few down in the cellar for an easy 5+ years.

Tasted July 2015.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This delicious Riesling has a nose of ripe pineapple and minerality. The juicy palate has ripe tropical pineapple, mango & guava, lemon and minerality. A mouth-watering medium-bodied mouthfeel and tropical fruit finish.
Named for winemaker Ed Madronich's mother Nadia, this vineyard was planted in 2000. It's situated at the top of the Niagara Escarpment and comprises only two hectares. With this elevation, the grapes ripen later than those below by several weeks. The grapes are pressed in whole bunches and fermented in stainless steel tanks. - Community Wine Reviews
