Matt Steeves rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Rosewood's popular Süssreserve Riesling benefits from a top-up of pure unfermented sweet Riesling juice to add an extra bit of refreshing delicious flavour to this unique style of wine. Off dry, it's loaded with sweet orchard fruit, with a sweet and tangy finish. Terrific with spicy Asian dishes, BBQ fare, or fresh summer salads with balsamic dressing and fresh cut fruit. Tasted April 2016. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a great off-dry Riesling with 27g/l residual sugar. Refreshing summer sipper with balanced acidity. Wonderful pairing with Szechuan crispy beef or other moderately sweet Asian fusion dishes @jonsteeves rated 89/100 tasted at #tasteontario2016
Tania Thomas rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

With a long and warm ripening season Niagara’s Riesling thrived in 2015. Just off-dry, bright and fruit-forward, it was crafted with the addition of unfermented juice (süssreserve) to perfectly balance acidity and its natural sweetness. It delivers abundant aromas and flavours of lemon drops, green apples, ripe peaches and honey with a touch of minerality. Perfect for spring and summer patio sipping and a great match with slightly spicy dishes.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Delightful and highly aromatic with bright tree fruit flavours and touch of citrus on nose and palate. Medium-dry with elegant perfumed finish. Low alcohol at 10.1%.

Rosewood Estates Winery & Meadery Süssreserve Riesling 2015, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: Lovely honeysuckle and apple blossom on the nose and palate of this vibrant, mouth-watering Niagara white wine made from Riesling grapes.

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.
