|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Crafted from hand-harvested grapes, certified organic. Refreshing honeycrisp apple, peach, lime and slight wet stone aromatics, repeated on a crisp, mouthwatering palate. Excellent balance and fresh citrus finish. Pair with Asian cuisine or smoked trout salad.
Tasted September, 2018

This is an organic and biodynamic Riesling from the Nova Scotia winery Lightfoot & Wolfville. Off dry with 17 g/l of sugar offset by some nice acidity. Aromas of honey and peach. Lots of flavour with white stone fruit with some peach predominant. Low alcohol - only 11% makes it an easy drinking wine. Pair with asian dumplings. Tasted September 16, 2018.

Organic and biodynamic, riesling from Annapolis Valley's Lightfoot and Wolfville. Lots of ripe stone fruits - peach, nectarine and apricot. Flavours encompass lime citrus, yellow plums, herbal freshness, golden apples and honeydew rinds. Fresh and fruity with well integrated medium plus acidity and a light body. Pair with barbecued honey garlic chicken. 90 points - tasted September 2018

This is a really cool wine. Lightfoot and Wolfville's Riesling is grown on the glacial till and sandy loam of Annapolis in Nova Scotia. They are turning a lot of heads for their remarkablly unique terroir.
It is sooo aromatic and fruity. Lily of the valley, fern, dried rose petal, quince, cherimoya, starfruit, and apple.
It has a very delicate colour; pale lemon.
The flavours are soft. It is a sussreserve (meaning a portion of the unfermented juice is reintroduced to add. Sweetness).
An aromatic feast! Pair this with something that won't hide those wonderful aromas. Quail on a salad would be great.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lovely! Aromas of honeysuckle, peach, pear, and wet stone. Lovely balance, nice combination of fruit, acidity and minerality. Enjoy with slightly spicy dishes, or any seafood.
