Petrol lemon awesome. How do they get so much flavour with so much alcohol? Okay I know the answer but still. Pair with fresh seafood. Lip-smacking delicious!

Riesling food pairings: roast chicken, grilled salmon with lemon sauce, feta cheese, baby greens salad with fig dressing.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Citrus, peach and minerality aromas. Bright tree fruit palate with lemon & subtle minerality. Very flavourful, lingering lemony finish. Enjoy with spicy foods, curries, chicken stir-fries.

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A very mineral Riesling that has crunchy green apple aromas as well as peach, pineapple and hints of white pepper and saline. It has crisp acidity on the palate with lemon flavours, and juicy sweet peach. The flavours are well integrated with the beautiful tartness of this lovely and enjoyable wine! Yummy!

Tasted November 2017
Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A lovely almost dry style of Ontario Riesling that offers an early glimpse of what an aged Riesling is all about. Not subtle hints of petrol aromas dance around various tree fruits makes this wine reminiscent of Rieslings with more age than this label shows. If evolving early, good for those of us who are a bit impatient with wines.
Hidden Bench Estate Riesling (2015) is a blend of the three estate vineyards. On the nose the wine is lime citrus and white grapefruit. On the palate, the fruit is more elegant and austere with a chalky minerality and mouth watering acidity. - Community Wine Reviews
