Reviews and Ratings
|Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
A classically styled off-dry Riesling; crisp, fresh, vibrant and tangy. The nose is boosted by a hint of petrol, lemon zest, yellow plum and spice, shows some pear and a mineral tone. It's light to mid-weight, with a trace of sweetness to balance the acidity. The palate is very pleasant with lime zest, grapefruit, honey, mineral as well as fresh fruit notes. Brilliant length and tension with a lingering taste of lime and grapefruit. A great food wine to match with fresh greens and wide range mild cheeses and seafood dishes. Another steal!
|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
From gently sloping vineyards of Niagara’s Beamsville Bench comes this sought-after, award winning Riesling. Beautifully aromatic with crisp acidity and pronounced signature minerality of its region’s soil. It delivers bursts of zingy citrus and ripe white peaches with a subtle touch of sweetness and a whiff of petrol. Perfect as an aperitif or served as a companion to dishes enhanced by a splash of lemon juice, from lemon roast chicken, variety of pan fried fish and seafood to veal scaloppini.
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A classic example of a well done Ontario Riesling derived from mineral rich soil. This wine exudes juicy lemon-lime flavors and crisp green orchard apples on the palate with an electric acidity…it is refreshing and simply leaves you wanting another glass.
|Neil Phillips rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Another fine example from a winery that consistently showcases Ontario Riesling .
Classic citrus nose of lemon (with a touch of lime), white flowers, grapefruit, white stone fruits.
On the palate, bracing acidity through a long finish. Citrus carries all the way to the end.
Gorgeous and versatile with food, this is Moorish on its own.
Tasted June 2015.
|Steven rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A nice dry acidic wine, with aromas of yellow Apple, tropical fruit, and underlines of light melon. Taste is enhanced with additional tat Apple and white grapefruit. A nice wine.

Mineral nose with typical petroleum aromas. The key with riesling if to offer a nice acidity and this wine delivers. Very pleasant. Will be great with sushis.
