Wismer Vineyard Riesling 2016

Bought on our 2018 trip to Ontario. The product of a very long and wonderful tasting. They had a lot of neat experimental wines. This was a higher end than I normally would have bought but wanted to support the place. — a month ago

9.0

Really nice - dry, opened after half hour - light-medium wine, raspberry, red currant and plum, minimal oak (good thing), though too much acid keeps this from being far better. Time in bottle will help and would be better with charcuterie to temper the acid. — 11 days ago

VQA Beamsville Bench Natur Zero Dosage 2013

Bracing acidity, green apple, Lemon, wet stone, white flowers (acacia) and hawthorn. Loads of chalky minerality, cleansing acidity; rounds out on a long finish. Needs food to shine its brightest — a month ago

Reserve Cabernet Franc

Delicious little Canadian gem! Who knew Canada made such fine red wine? Too bad it’s not easily accessible. My hubs & I would consider making this our “house wine.” — 24 days ago

Beamsville Bench VQA Chardonnay 2016

Very Meursault-like with good acidity, Lemon, Flint, struck match, a hint of pear. There is a creamy now to the texture I like very much, wonderful ripeness. Medium body and very persistent on the finish. — a month ago
