Natalie's Score: 90/100

Yes! Apricot and honeysuckle aromas waft from the glass in a lovely profusion for the senses. There's a touch of sweetness but not too much and it's in balance with the backbone of refreshing acidity, making it an ideal companion for many dishes.

Riesling food pairings: Asian fusion cuisine, Thai curry dishes, turkey, glazed ham, light pasta dishes, luscious lobster and crab, glazed pork tenderloin, sushi.

Reviews and Ratings

James Belardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

For me, one of the summer's perfect light wines is Inniskillen's Late Autumn Riesling. It is a fantastic complement to light meals such as salads, fish or chicken. I usually prefer deep and tannic red wines from places like France and Italy but I tend to gravitate towards the German-style whites during the summer. Inniskillin's Late Autumn Riesling has become one of my 'go to' wines as I have found it to be refreshing and consistent.

Visit our gastronomic grotto, The Grape Gourmet (http://grapegourmet.wordpress.com) for recipes and stories of our culinary adventures.
Grapes were harvested in lat October from vineyards throughout the Niagara Peninsula; fermented at a cool temperatures in stainlesss steel tanks preserving the fresh fruit characteristics; fementation stopped at 23 g/l and balanced with its natural acidity. Citrus and ripe apple aromas dominate the nose; the touch of sweetness provides a soft, round mouthfeel with tropical and citrus flavours; clean dry finish.
