From Henry of Pelham Estate on the Short Hills Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region, a mouth-watering, lean and bright Riesling with white-fleshed stone fruit, crunchy green apple and lime zest flavours. Chill and enjoy now and for the next five years.

Reviews and Ratings
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Love this elegantly made Riesling from vines planted in 1984, this wine is pure fruit, light in body while still lingering on the finish. Crisp peach, pear, lemongrass, grapefruit zest, honey, and orange blossom. Very balanced acidity, great pairing for a crisp green salad with a honey Dijon vinaigrette, goats cheese.
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Yum! A great example of the vibrant, high quality Riesling we make in Ontario. Fresh on the nose with aromas of Granny Smith apple, peach, lime, and almond, with saline and mineral undertones.
Medium bodied and oh so pleasant on the palate. It packs a punch with concentrated tart green apple and lemon notes, along with subtle peach, almond and just a very slight perceived sweetness. Beautiful!
Pair with roasted pork, curries, or with Stilton cheese.
|Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Crisp and aromatic, this riesling from Short Hill Bench shows hallmark aromas and flavours. Anticipate white orchard fruit along with tempting petrol and mineral notes. Food friendly, this wine can also be enjoyed on its own.
|Pam Hatton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale straw with a classic Niagara nose of citrus, peach, petrol and a floral hint. Crisp lemon acidity carries the white stone fruit, apple and grapefruit to a juicy long finish. Will develop nicely with ageing.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lovely, and has me thinking of spring. Aromas of pear, melon, and golden apple with a stony hint. Medium bodied and creamy with some bright acidity, and lots of vibrant fruit on the palate. Very bright and refreshing with a mineral note on the finish. Enjoy with oysters or any seafood.
|Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful example of Niagara Rielsing. Hints of petrol show the promise of what would come with additional aging. Citrus and underripe tree fruit come to mind with the very crisp style. Lovely food and truly food diverse.
|Barely off-dry with vibrant acidity Henry of Pelham's estate vineyards Riesling is zesty with ripe apple, white floral and sweet citrus flavours with great balance of acidity to fruit poised on the palate. Pair with grilled pork chops and Honeycrisp applesauce. - Community Wine Reviews|
