It's gratifying to see how Niagara winemakers have learned how to handle riesling in the warmer vintages. In 2007, most of them were all cooked lemon and petrol, more reminiscent of riesling from Australia than cool-climate Ontario. The tide seems to have turned in the warm 2010 and 2012 vintages, and this is a great example: lime, green apple, grapefruit, wrapped up in mouth-watering acidity. Tasty and refreshing, as riesling should be.

Green apple, turpentine, floral, and mineral notes. It is off-dry with crisp acidity and lots of fruit. Can age for 4-5 years.
