The nose doesn’t present a great deal, but there are hints of lime, apple and summer peach. On the palate it feels rich, and is full of ripe pear, peach preserve and lime. The acidity in this wine provides a perfect counterpoint to the ripe flavours. The finish is excellent, transitioning from apple pie spice and pear to a lingering impression of ripe stone fruit. This is really unlike any other riesling on the shelves of the LCBO. The air dry process has given this wine a rich lush profile not present in other wines from the cold climate grape. It’s worth the $28 for the experience of a fresh interpretation of Riesling, and a wine unlike anything else from Niagara.
