Tasting Notes

A ripe wine from a ripe vintage. Ripe apple, candied lemon, and honey on the nose with a hint of “mineral” tones from the sun-exposure. Already starting to show slight “petrol” notes, which are a happy consequence of a generous vintage (see TDN in wine). The palate is dry and fresh, brimming with bright acidity and freshness, but that honey still shines through in the flavour profile along with lemon and white peach. A varietally sound example of Niagara Riesling. This delicate wine would pair well with any white fish done “en papillote”, folded in parchment with white wine, herbs, vegetables, and most importantly, butter.
