Organically grown from estate vineyards. Medium-high intensity aromas with lovely orange, Flintstones vitamins, and citrus with crisp aroma replays on a light frame. Medium-dry in sweetness and juicy, with bracing acids and very good length on the finish. Quality stuff. Tasted Nov/2014. Score: 89+ pts

This is a well put together and quite vivacious Niagara Riesling. It offers aromas of green apple, pear, pineapple, slate, and wet stone, but it's all about the zippy acidity after that, lemon tartness and lingering minerality. It's mostly on the drier and less juicy side of things, but the flavours hollow out mid-palate, followed by bitterness, and there isn't nearly enough non-citrus fruit to carry it. It's good to go now, particularly with food, but it could use a bit of aging to calm the acidity down and bring greater flavour depth and balance overall.
