Reviews and Ratings

Trent Mayers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Riesling has found its place in Ontario and consistently produces great wines. This white is an attractive pale lemon in the glass and shows the intense citrus, particularly lime, that characterizes Ontario Riesling. Even though it's medium dry, your palate will tell you it’s only off dry due to the vibrant acidity. Rieslings are extremely food friendly wines and you could enjoy this one with a variety of cuisines. Drink it German style with pork sausage smothered with caramelized sautéed onion or put it to the test to complement spicy East Asian dishes.

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon coloured Riesling, with pronounced aroma of lemon, lime, ripe peach, white floral and with a strong waxy aroma. Medium sweetness with a pleasing acidity and smooth , luscious mouthfeel. In the mouth there is a nice hit of fresh , food friendly acidity, with tastes of lime, lemon, ripe peach, wax, and white grapefruit. Always a pleasant wine to share with friends, great on a patio . I tasted with Dubliner cheese (like a mature cheddar) which paired well, enhancing both cheese and wine.
Denise O'connor rated this wine as 74/100 with the following review:
