“I adore the focus and the balance of this vintage”, winemaker Brian mused as he reflected upon the making of this wine. This is quite the statement as it took every lesson Brian had ever learned to bring this wine and vintage to fruition. The wine is complex with a myriad of flavour components coming at you all at once but no single element is louder than the next. There is harmony in all the voices. Of course this storied wine has its hallmark notes of lemon-lime zest, white peach and wet shale, but they are all integrated beautifully. This wine brings a remarkable energy but it is controlled and focussed just like the refreshing acidity. This wine has the athletic ease and excitement of a world class tightrope walker.

 

 

 

92 points
Aromas of mandarin orange, honey-drizzled pit fruit and whiffs of fresh ginger abound on the nose of this flavourful, value-packed, iconic riesling that was sourced from some of the oldest riesling vines in Ontario. A bracing wash of tangy lime cordial and lemon curd bathe the palate persisting through the very lengthy, mouth-watering finish and aftertaste. It’s medium-bodied with good texture and pours well with baked ham dotted with cloves, or spaetzle with grilled or pan-fried bratwurst.
