The nose is loads of fruit with lemon-lime, peaches and nectarines. There is a hint of flint (minerality) on the nose that alludes to the evident minerality once you taste it. This wine absolutely rocks your palate with juicy honeyed peaches followed by crisp acidity. Buy lots and drink now through the next 10 years if you think you can leave it alone.

A gorgeous perfumed nose of orange blossom, peaches, lemon/lime, white flowers & white musk. It's off dry adding a nice peachy-sweetness to the mix, but ample acid to balance this delicious beauty. It’s a luxurious wine that really charms & relaxes you.

Minerality and floral components on the nose along with some honey. Green apples and honey on the palate that also has very nice mouth feel. Minerals again on the long finish.

Medium bodied with flavours of key lime pie, wet stone, and honey this wine has a slight sweetness that is easily kept in check with crisp acidity. A great wine to enjoy with spicy Thai curries, grilled prawns or roast pork tenderloin.

Riesling is a varietal that Vineland always does well. The 2011 version sourced from the St. urban vineyard is no exception. This is a pale, light fragrant, off dry wine. Citrus, mineral and floral notes on the nose. Fruitiness (yummy lemons) with juicy acidity is followed by a lingering finish. The wine is light and airy (only 9.5% ABV), yet there's a slightly creamy viscosity on the mouthfeel. Very nice. 90-91. October 2013.
