Ripe apple, honey and stonefruit flavours on this harmonious Riesling from Redstone Limestone Vineyard South (2016), produced by Tawse, one of Niagara's best producers. The vineyard is so named for the large stones and the red clay soil in the vineyards.
Riesling food pairings: scallop ceviche, white fish with mango salsa, salt and pepper shrimp skewers.

|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Today, I bring you a zippy Ontario Riesling from the Twenty Mile Bench Niagara Escarpment.
VQA Ontario $19.95
The 2016 Limestone Vineyard South is a light, off-dry white wine with enough lip smacking acidity to cut through the florals and honey to keep the sweetness in check. Citrus, stony minerality, petrol and canned peaches complete the profile. Lingering citrus and honeyed finish.
At just 10% alcohol this is a superb summer sipper enjoyed on the patio or by the pool. Riesling fits in anywhere!
Other Riesling pairings: Asian cuisine, German bratwurst/schnitzel, Indian curries, English fish & chips, charcuterie board, vegetarian dishes, assorted seafood.
If you happen to be in the Niagara wine region be sure to stop by this beautiful winery. Their patio is spectacular! And so is the food!
|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Intense lime, petrol, and mineral aromas with underlying lemon. Potent palate with highly concentrated flavours of lemon, peach, tropical fruits, and slate. Mouthwatering, off dry though very well balanced. Lemon, peach, and petrol again in the finish. Those petrol notes were easy to achieve in the wine's youth in a hot vintage like 2016, but this kind of balance took some skill and effort between the vineyard and winemaking teams. Serve with sauteed shrimp, bacon-wrapped scallops, or smoked trout.
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This off dry Riesling delivers whole heartedly on the classic aromatic, petrol nose. Some secondary stone fruit notes (peach). The intensity of the nose doesn't quite carry over to the palate but it has a satisfying waxy, mouth feel. Medium finish. Tasted April 2019.
