Petrol, wet river stone, love. Outboard motor on a lovely lazy summer's day ... trust me, this is a great thing. Close your eyes. Have I ever led you astray? Drink. Peach stone. Stop thinking.
Riesling food pairings: potato, chickpea and lentil green curry.

Reviews and Ratings
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Mouthwatering acidity, with a slightly tart medium body. Bruised apple, wet stone, candied lemon peel, tart nectarine and a hint of petrol. Enjoyed with Thai yellow curry with chicken and potato and also paired well with a shrimp pad Thai. Tasted 2016 vintage in August 2017. 89 points.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This Riesling, from Ontario star-producer, Norman Hardie, does not just come from his Prince Edward County holdings, nor was it sourced from Niagara. It is VQA Ontario; meaning it is likely from both.
It has the mineral structure of the county and the clay/limestone power of Niagara.
It is already taking on the concentrated yellow of a more concentrated riesling.
Aroma-wise, look for lemon, curd, smoke, honey, quince, mirabelle plum, and table grape.
It tastes so juicy and fresh. There is a touch of sweetness, but it has so much acidity energy it is hardly noticeable. More honey, orchard fruit, and tons of lemon amd white grapefruit.
Super drinkable. Maybe a short-term ager (3-5 years), but its energy is its most appealing characteristic. Put it with lobster, crabs, or fresh oysters. Great with other light meats or salty cheese too.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Young and kinda tightly wound...this is light-bodied, off-dry, yet tart with nice lemon-citrus, apple, barely a hint of lime (I would like more, please sir!) Let's see what happens in a couple years? Tonight, though, drink it with pan-seared pickerel. Yum!
|Norman Hardie (2016) is an Ontario Riesling with wet slate, honey and ripe peaches -- typical German style Riesling made in Canada, eh. Fantastic on a hot summer day with pan-fried trout straight from the lake. - Community Wine Reviews|
