Superb! Wet stone, lime and come-alive grapefruit aromas. Light-bodied but not wimpy. Packed with flavour for shellfish and seafood.
Riesling food pairings: roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, shrimp tempura, grilled salmon with lemon sauce, duck liver pate.
Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Absolutely stunning Ontario Riesling - Thirty Bench excels at this varietal. Talc, rose, peach, lanolin and other floral notes on the nose and lime zestiness, pear, apple, honeysuckle on the palate. Beautifully balanced and immensely quaffable. The 2015 received a Gold medal at the 2016 Wine Align Awards.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Thirty Bench's Riesling never fails me. The quality for value is amazing. Vibrant citrus, stone fruit and petrol aromas lead way to crisp lime, lemon honey, minerality and beeswax flavours. A quintessential mineral right, high acid, well-balanced, dry Riesling. Enjoy with BBQ shrimp and pineapple skewers. Tasted July 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Gorgeous Ontario Riesling from the Beamsville Bench region. Thirty Bench Winemaker's Riesling won the silver medal at the all Canadian Wine Championships in 2015. Aromas of ripe peach, pear, Meyer lemon and mineral notes. The palate is greeted with lively acidity and flavours of green apple, pear, ripe peach, citrus and a hint of minerality. Crisp and refreshing with a long, citrus finish. Tasted Sept. 2016.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Tasted the 2015 in Feb 2017. Mouthwatering acidity, packed with Asian pear, wet stone minerality, tart almost ripe nectarine with typical Riesling petrol. Beautiful on the palate with long finish. Medium bodied. Well balanced and integrating. Paired well with calamari. Enjoyable on it's own as well. A fresh and brilliant example of cool climate dry Niagara Peninsula VQA Riesling. Wonderful value, accessibly priced. Crowd pleaser. Rated 91/100. Bespoketastings.ca
