The classification for Thirty Bench here as a ‘basic’ Riesling is such a stretch in consideration that the fruit is...

Another fine example from a winery that consistently showcases Ontario Riesling .

Classic citrus nose of lemon (with a touch of lime), white flowers, grapefruit, white stone fruits.

On the palate, bracing acidity through a long finish. Citrus carries all the way to the end.

Gorgeous and versatile with food, this is Moorish on its own.

Tasted June 2015.
