The most intense Hardie Riesling yet, with such attack and furor. High citrus spiked liqueur in feverish pitch. On...

Open and honeyed, quite intensely so, with highly attractive aromatics in an authentic guise. The palate is off-dry...

The 2012 Norman Hardie Riesling, a 70/30% fruit blend from Twenty Mile Bench and PEC, has intense, seductive aromas of petrol, lemon, pineapple and pear. It is a medium bodied, dry, fruity wine; BALANCED with crisp/refreshing acidity and a long, oily finish. It is a food friendly wine, but sip on its own; drink now – 2025+ (screw cap enclosure). My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts – recommended for quality and value. Tasted at 'County in the City' event http://grapeselections.com/county-in-the-city-2014/ in Apr/14.

Blend of 70% Twenty Mile Bench (Niagara) fruit and 30% County fruit. Highly aromatic with petrol, stone fruit, mineral and beeswax aromas. Light-bodied with clean minerals, citrus and peach on the palate. Medium-dry in the sweetness, but balanced acidity keeps everything in check. Long, clean finish. Very nice! Tasted Apr/2014. Score: 90+ pts
