Henry of Pelham Estate 2017 Riesling is mouth-watering, lean with crunchy green apple, white peaches and a flinty mineral finish. Pair with pork schnitzel and herbed dumplings. Chill and drink now or hold for three years.

|Andrea Shapiro - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Love this! Fruity, fragrant and floral with keen petrol nuances and lingering minerals. The acidity is terrifically bright and matches the peach, apple and lime zest fruit perfectly followed by the crisp freshness of apple skins and delicate citrus pith. On the off-dry side but superbly balanced. Pair with spicy barbecue turkey sliders or sweet and sour chicken. 90 points - tasted December 2018
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is a great value for a Riesling every vintage. For 20 bucks, you get structure, finesse, and older bottles I've had have proven this one can keep pretty well.
2017 was a difficult vintage until the end, strangely. It was frosty, then humid, then it hailed!.. Somehow Niagara seemed to fair decently well overall and star varietals, like Riesling, will impress.
This wine has a bit more of a backbone than previous vintages, but that may well work in favour of the style.
Pale lemon colour, a wee bit of residual sugar, and lots of nice citrusy aromatics.
Juicy green apple, nectarine, and lemon to the palate. Fresh acidity and a medium body.
Pair this wine with yakitori and a seaweed salad.
|From the Estate of Henry of Pelham, the 2017 Riesling from Short Hills Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region is floral, with light green herb aromas, mouth-watering, lean, crunchy green apple, white peaches on the palate with a flinty mineral finish. Enjoy now and for the next three years. Pair with pork schnitzel and herbed dumplings. - Community Wine Reviews|
