Quality for a bargain! An affordable expression of such a luxurious wine at a fraction of the cost. Prominent notes include candied orange peel and apricot puree! I boast an unctuous mouthfeel and long wildflower honey finish. Tasted Feb 2017 by @sommsosa
Jane Staples rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Late harvested grapes give maximum flavour. Honey, lemon and apricot aromas start off this beautiful wine, echoed on palate along with lanolin and lemon curd. Rich, satiny, luxurious. Excellent accompaniment to blue cheeses, pate, or alone as dessert. Fantastic gift wine.

Heather Wall rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Always one of my favourites vintage after vintage. Aromas and flavours of sweet Niagara orchard fruits - peach, apricot, pear, apple with lifts of nectar and sweet baking spices and meed. The colour in the glass is a brilliant amber reminiscent of autumn leaves. Savour each sip on it's own or pair with vanilla bean ice cream or warm apple pie. Great value!

Natalie's Review

Cave Spring Cellars Indian Summer Select Late Harvest Riesling 2013, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario Vqa, Canada: Liquid gorgeous year after year, Cave Spring delivers this late harvest Riesling for our drinking pleasure. Apricot peach blossom. Perfect for angel food cake and fruit-based desserts. The Riesling grapes for this dessert wine are picked later in the fall, well after those from the dry style table wine. The result is much more concentrated flavours and fruit sweetness like apricot preserves. Pair this terrific wine with blue cheeses and toasted almonds.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
