Natalie's Score: 89/100
Lovely honeysuckle and apple blossom on the nose and palate of this vibrant, mouth-watering Niagara white wine made from Riesling grapes. Light-bodied but packed with flavour and acidity. Pair with fresh seafood.
Süssreserve Riesling food pairings: roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, shrimp tempura, grilled salmon with lemon sauce, duck liver pate.
Sensational Shellfish Wine

|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of peach, orange blossom, honey, and marmalade. It is bright and has crisp acidity with stone fruit flavours and hints of clementine. Delicious!
Pair with Asian food.

|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Rosewood's Süssreserve Riesling benefits from a post-fermentation top-up of fresh (unfermented) Riesling juice which adds an extra dose of sweet and refreshing flavour, texture, and complexity to this unique and much loved style of wine. Off dry, it's loaded with sweet orchard and tropical fruit, with a long zippy finish. Terrific with spicy Asian dishes, BBQ fare, or fresh summer salads with balsamic dressing and fresh cut fruit. Tasted April 2018. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Sussreserve gives the winemaker the ability to precisely balance the acidity of a Riesling to it's level of sweetness. I see what the winemaker wanted to achieve. Lots of crispness - lots. Offset by enough sweetness that nobody could say it was too much. Some might prefer a touch more sweetness but it's so personal. Anyway expect more than a smack of dryness from this Riesling.
|From the Niagara Escarpment wine region, Rosewood 2016 is a Süssreserve Riesling with a honeysuckle and white blossoms nose. This is the last vintage for this style of Riesling that involves blending unfermented grape juice (Süssreserve) into the fermented wine. Lots of lime, stonefruit and white grapefruit flavours on the palate. Very refreshing. Pair with a pork schnitzel. - Community Wine Reviews|
