Nose of lime more than lemon; mineral, white flowers, pear.
On the palate, this is classic Ontario Riesling, and a good example. Crisp citrus and gooseberry predominate, with white stone fruit playing a supporting role. The mid-palate is a bit short, so the medium finish is more citrus and mineral two-tone, less other fruit complexity.
Tasted July 2015.

This is a nice, fresh, zippy riesling here. Lots of lemon/lime with stoney minerality, and a hint of petrol. Vibrant, fresh, grippy acids. Really incredible value here for $14.
The winemaker has done a commendable job of capturing that stoney/limey riesling quality, especially in this warmer vintage and at such a reasonable price point. That said, I find this wine to be a be a bit too dry and austere for my taste. I think it would show better in an off-dry style, and, as an added bonus, the alcohol would be, say, 9-10% instead of 12%. I'm a big fan of Ontario riesling, but Germany still sets the gold standard for this varietal!
