In a blind tasting I mistook this for Niagara Bench riesling, worth twice the price. From the cool, maritime Nelson...

Green apple, floral notes, apricots, and terpentine on the nose. Crisp acidity and plenty of fruit on this off-dry wine. Outstanding value - this is easily worth $15 or more.

This hints at the off dry style without overstepping the boundary from dry. Expect scent combinations of spiced fruit and honeyed notes. The taste shows pronounced lemon/lime citrus zest and just an underlying sweetness with green apple and spice on the finish. Interesting to sip and I love the label: it gives you fly fishing tips and has little to do with the wine. Tasted Aug 2012.
