 Winemaking Data:
-cool fermented in stainless steel over 3 weeks with selected yeast with no blending or fining required
-100% Riesling

Tasting Notes:

Light coloured white wine with crisp cool climate hues.  Lifted aromatics pairing nuances of grapefruit zest, minerality evolving to honeyed fruit as the wine warms.  Citrus and minerality reappear on the palate, balancing the residual sugars with lively acidity creating a zippy, mouth-watering Riesling experience.  Enjoy with appetizers such as smoked salmon, seafood, poultry, mild cheeses or on its own. 

 Great with a frivolous culinary adventure or the simplest of cuisine.

87 points: "This is a 100% Riesling, which is off-dry (29g/l). There is brisk acidity and profile of lime, petrol, honey, mineral and grapefruit. It requires something spicy, so that the sweetness can tame the fire. Try with Thai coconut curry or sushi with a heavy dose of soy sauce and wasabi." 
Rick Vansicklewinesinniagara.com
87 points: " This 100% Riesling has an expressive nose of lime, citrus, peach and pineapple. It’s on the sweet side on the palate with honeyed notes to go with citrus, lime, ginger and hinting at minerality. Partially balanced by the acidity, but designed for those who enjoy wines with a sweet edge."
Jon Steeves - Sommelier, nataliemaclean.com
89 points: "Off-dry, floral, ripe Bartlett pear and orange blossom. Lip smacking with a smooth mouthfeel. Well balanced. Medium plus acidity. Great on it’s own and pairs well with Thai pork curry and jasmine rice...Great value." 

Lisa Labelle, winecurrent.ca83 points: This 100% Niagara Riesling offers aromas of red apple, grapefruit and peach with wisps of honey and pretty floral notes. Decidedly off-dry and nicely textured, sweet orchard fruit replays on the palate with hints of peach pie. This easy-going well-priced white can be enjoyed on its own or alongside your favourite Thai curry.

Jennifer Havers, nataliemaclean.com 89 points: So refreshing! Vibrant, nice lemon-lime aromas as well as a little bit of melon and some stony minerality. Off dry, with nice balanced acidity. Lemon-lime really comes through on the palate with a medium finish. Pair with white fish dishes, or enjoy on a patio! Tasted May 2018
