Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Sue-Ann staff is sometimes fondly referred to as the Riesling wizard of Niagara. She is not the only producer succeeding in quality riesling, but one would be hard pressed to find a more reliable producer. With Staff's Riesling, every year impresses.
This allotment of vines are older and low yielding. This means what little grapes the vine produces are more concentrated and flavourful.
Pale and youthful looking. Energizing and vibrant, this wine is very dry but fruity. Wonderful aromas of guava, lemon juice, key lime, apple sauce, honeysuckle, and slate.
The palate is zippy, but not so puckering it's unapproacheable. Lots of fresh citrus: lime, lemon, and tangerine. Guava, lemon, and pie apple on the finish.
A fabulous and ageable wine that would also go great with red snapper or a cobb salad.

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.

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.
