Natalie's Score: 90/100

Love the lime zest and minerality in this lovely Niagara Riesling. Pair it with fresh seafood and peering at your image in a reflecting pool. Riesling is a grape that reflects the terroir and place where it's cultivated, thus the wine's name and mirror image on the label.

Riesling food pairings: roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, shrimp tempura, grilled salmon.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Tasted 2011 vintage in February 2017. Tart and tight. well structured acidity and layered fruit. Mouthwatering with a medium long finish and persistence of Lime zest, orange blossom and tertiary minerality. This wine reflects the terroir and is aptly named narcissist. Beautiful on its own or paired with fried fish, or pan fried schnitzel. Rated 89/100. Enjoy soon.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A delicious Riesling from the Niagara Peninsula/Vinemount Ridge. Very aromatic with peach, petrol and citrus on the nose. Starts out off-dry but there is enough acidity to leave a long lingering mouth watering finish. Grapefruit and lime flavours and so much mineral - you can almost taste slate rock if that's possible. A great aperitif to cleanse your palate, although I am picturing it with fried fish tacos finished with a twist of lime juice. Tasted February 8, 2019
Oh well, it's all about the wine. No illusions of grandeur here. Megalomaniac's Narcissist (2015) Riesling is expressive of its terroir as Riesling can and should be, and at great price as well.- Community Wine Reviews
