A little smoother this year. Lively and rounded by a noticeable dose of sugar. Lemony with hints of sugar candy.

The 2011 Mission Hill Riesling Reserve has an intense nose of citrus, light pear and light minerality. It is a full-bodied, dry, fruity wine, with good, crisp acidity and a long finish. Enjoy by itself or drink with food of your choice; drink now – 2020 (screw cap enclosure). My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended for its quality and excellent value. Tasted September/13.

Crisp petrol, honey, and lime aromas of medium intensity, with hints of minerality. It's off-dry with a palate consisting of peach, citrus and tropical fruits. Balanced throughout with a fine seam of acidity that makes it very food-friendly. Lengthy finish. Nice! Tasted Sept/2013.
