Some thoughts on this bottle:

- The 22 g/L of RS show as about half that and is a component of why the wine tastes objectively delicious. I have suspicions as to why we in Niagara are a bit snobbish about RS but we really ought to get past that.
- Has just the slightest hint on the nose of the distinctive Niagara riesling note of black olive. I’m told that’s due to picking due to weather pressure and picking for necessity rather than phenolic ripeness. Will follow up as to how and when and why here.
- It’s really quite good. Definitely comfortably above average on any grading scale. But not as objectively high-quality as the chardonnay and that seems to hold true for the region.

A sweet and juicy Niagara Riesling. Lots of pear, green grape and yellow watermelon.

Delightful with pleasant melon, apricot & light citrus layering in its flavours. It also has an appropriate oily underline flavour & thickness in mouth throughout consumption. This is a good Riesling but not a “great” one as the price point & exclusivity of the winery implies. I’ve certainly tasted better from some of their neighbouring wineries. 🥂

Apricot on the nose, peach on the palette. Sooooooooo yum. A great representation of what Niagara Riesling can do.
