Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Stunning! This wine is the best of everything to love about Ontario Riesling. Aromas of petrol and saline mineral hints, mingled with lime zest and hints of tangerine and peach. Light bodied, but bursting with vibrant fruit on the palate, and mouthwatering acidity. Dry, with just a hint of sweetness, and more lovely minerality on the finish. Everything is in balance. Enjoy with any seafood.

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