Natalie's Score: 90/100

A pretty, soft, light-bodied Niagara Riesling that's still packed with flavour. Notes of lime blossom, fresh peach and green apple. Soft acidity that is still balancing. Pair with halibut.

Riesling food pairings: roasted glazed ham, goats cheese or white pizza with mozzrella, Romano and vegetable toppings.

Reviews and Ratings

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bright, dry and freshly acidic Riesling with honeysuckle and lime on the nose, lemon/lime, hint of stone fruit and steely on the palate. Great value. Enjoy with herbed pan-fried trout.
Carola Price rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light Riesling with notes of rose, peach and apricot in the nose. Hint of petrol and mineral. All replicated on the palate. Good acidity. Easy going wine. Pleasant.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light and delicate, but still with lots of flavour. Lemon-lime along with some mineral notes on the nose. Bright acidity, this wine is mouthwatering, and flavours really come through on the palate. For the price, this is a great value. Personally, I love Riesling with oysters, but this would also be a great summer patio wine. (January 2017)
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

From the Classic Tier, a budget-friendly Riesling that shows mainly mineral and citrus notes on the nose, followed by ripe peach, mineral and lemon zest on the palate. Enjoy with goat's milk and mushroom pizza.

Clean, crisp. acidic with some minerality. It has a long citrus finish. Aromas of melon, honey, white flowers, peach, lemon and lime. Light bodied, a great sipping wine.
