Jay Denney rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Great value! I wasn't expecting to get classic German / Alsace petrol notes on the nose of this one, but there they gloriously were. Some very nice stone ripe stone fruit on the palate, with citrus acidity to balance.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon coloured with aromas of grapefruit, stonefruit and fresh lilies. On the palate, flavours reveal white peach, pink citrus, tropical fruit, and pineapple. Overall it’s nicely balanced with firm acidity to match the lingering off-dry sweetness. Try this with a Thai mango salad and cold rolls. Cheers!
David Skinner rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale yellow with a slight green accent. Aromas of apple, lime and a hint of varietal character petrol. Mouth watering acidity and flavours of apple and citrus. An abbreviated finish but fully reminiscent of what the palate revealed.

This is very food friendly and I pushed the bounds a bit by serving it with Roti and chicken curry. The citrus and acidity paired very well with the strength of the curry. It would also be nice with grilled veggies and roasted chicken with Chimichurri.
Janet Holden rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A light and refreshing aromatic wine with notes of lemon, lime, peach, apricot, lychee and honeysuckle. Very food friendly and slightly sweet. Fine on its own, or with appetizers, seafood and slightly spicy curry dishes.
L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon coloured wine with a green hue; lightly sweet, and a pronounced aroma of lanolin, sweet lime and white flowers. The pleasing acidity and lime flavours worked very well with organic salad greens with apple cider vinaigrette and roast chicken. This would also be very pleasant to sip on its own.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

From the Peller Family Vineyards, located in the Niagara region, the Riesling 2019 offers sharp aromas of lime, pink grapefruit, cinnamon, saline, ginger and petroleum. Light body and acidity, the wine exposes a round and delicious finish, and reveals flavors of green apple, lemon, honeysuckle, mango, saline and beeswax. Great served chilled as an apero. Enjoy.
Craig Haynes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula appellation. Stone fruit and citrus aromas framed by white spring flowers and lychee emerged in the bouquet to pretty effect. Medium bodied, mouth coating and slightly sweet, the creation featured fresh flavours reminiscent of tangerine and nectarines. Aromatics stole the show in this riesling so take time to enjoy them. Pour with grilled veggies from your garden or local farmers’ market.

Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lemon-lime, peach, and some wet stone minerality. Light bodied on the palate, dry overall with just a hint of sweetness on the finish. Fruit is vibrant and fresh on the palate with ++ acidity. Great value for this wine. Enjoy with any fresh seafood.
