Gorgeous wet stone and minerality with petrol in the best sense. Love this! medium-bodied with juicy, mouth-watering acidity. Pitch perfect for seafood, shellfish, vegetarian dishes and quiche. Yes please!

Riesling food pairings: baby greens salad, pork tenderloin, turkey breast, foie gras.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Elegant light floral Riesling with just a hint of petrol and wet stones. This light(+) body Riesling is buoyed with oxidized apple, citrus, honey, blossoms and a pithy back palate. Overall a very pleasant sipper with a lingering fresh lemon finish. Perfect salad wine.
Tasted: August 2016
Trail Estate winery is nestled where the Benway Road meets the Millennium Trail in Hillier Ontario of Prince Edward County. Small batch artisanal wines are made there. Only 235 cases of the Riesling was made. The fruit is from Ed Hughes' vineyard, fermented in stainless with some lees ageing. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

The Financial Times of London

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.
