Another lean, tightly wound, sharp riesling from Nadja's vineyard, finely woven and very nicely balanced. Lovely...

From a maturing plot higher on the hill near the winery, Nadja's riesling always shows more depth than the estate...

A year has turned a once frantic Nadja into a yet excited but in control Twenty Mile bencher. Acidity has circled the...

Fairly light Riesling alcohol (11.5%), by rounding a sugar residue (13 g) and with a biting acidity. Nothing complex,...

This reminds me - once again - why I just love Ontario Riesling. Well made, it simply shines.

On the palate, lemon zest, hint of lime, tart green herbs, hard white peach. Medium-plus body, there's something to chew on here. Final finish is lip-smacking lime. Nice hint of residual sugar on the finish, this wine is beautifully balanced and only slightly off-dry.

Would absolutely put a few down in the cellar for an easy 5+ years.

Tasted July 2015.

Medium intensity aromas with elegant mineral, orange citrus, tropical fruit and Flintstones vitamins. Juicy palate is medium-bodied with balanced aroma replays. Has vibrant acids to balance the sugar, bringing the sweetness down to the off-dry zone. Lengthy finish. Nice! Tasted Oct/2014.
