Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

This Riesling bursts with lemon and lime aromas on the nose. The hint of sweetness on the palate is balanced by the backbone of acidity and displays lime, floral and mineral flavours. The finish is clean and refreshing.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Ce Riesling déborde d’arômes de lime et de citron au nez. Le soupçon sucré au palais est équilibré par un fond d’acidité et présente des saveurs de lime, de fleurs et de minéraux. Le fini est net et rafraîchissant.

Jane LeFresne rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Why I Tried this Wine: Lucky me, I started a food and wine paring course, this happened to be the first wine we tried. I guess we started off homegrown proud.

Tasting Notes: a pale straw colour

Fruity aromas of pink grapefruit, citrus, melon, pear, green apple, peach with hints of honey.

Flavours of apple, citrus and grapefruit
This wine is fresh with mouth-watering acidity. Its light bodied and has a long apple flavoured finish.

Food Pairing: seafood dishes and spicy Asian cuisine.

Would I buy this Wine Again: Yes, at only $13.95 for a Canadian Riesling I find this to be a great valued wine.
Anna Bazzo rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

It took me a while to decide if I wanted to buy this wine or not, but I'm so glad I did! I was really surprised how yummy it was. While pouring myself a glass, I immediately picked up the aromas of lemon and lime. This dry riesling had nice crisp flavours and I knew that it would pair well with sushi or other seafood dishes. Most people who know me, know that I love purchasing Canadian wines, and this is one Canadian wine that I will definitely be purchasing again!

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.
