A lovely, savoury, mouth-watering Niagara Riesling with aromas of fresh lime and lemongrass. Perfect for seafood.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Big bodied, high alcohol (12%) Niagara Riesling. Canned mandarin, peach, honey, petrol. Mouthwatering big acidity, full bodied. Well balanced. Paired well with Vietnamese spring rolls. Would be an amazing pairing with Thai, Japanese and Chinese cuisine likewise. Great sipping as well. Remarkable acidity and fruit. Accessibly priced. Great value. 90 points. BespokeTastings

Full body, rich and round riesling from Niagara region. Good balance of dryness and sweetness. It will match with the richness and spiciness of Thai food well

|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
Tasted April 4th 2018. The colour pale straw brilliant. Light legs. Aromas and flavours of, citrus on the first sniff, the second sniff, lime lemon, ripe pear, peach and apple fruit. The taste off dry, crisp and fruity, light body, mouthwatering, low alcohol. Medium minus finish. This is a lovely wine to drink on a warm day. Matches well with food. I served the wine for lunch with a simple Thai dish, scrambled egg, fried chicken thigh pieces, red pepper, fresh green snow peas, bean sprouts, rice noodles, soy sauce and Thai sauce from a package. Topped with fresh green onion. Yum.
