Off dry, with big juicy mouthwatering acidity. Medium plus bodied. Waxy honey comb, apricot, ripe pear. Pairs well with spicy Thai chicken coconut milk curry. Tasted 2016 vintage in March 2018. 91 points
From Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region, Stonechurch Big Ideas (2016) Riesling is a medium-bodied, off-dry Riesling with stonefruit and lime/lemon zest flavours. Perfect pairing to pork schnitzel with schupfnudel. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
