Butlers' Grant Riesling, 2022

Shipped and sold by Westcott Vineyards

2022 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 11% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 91 pts

From the oldest vines planted at our Butlers' Grant vineyards, this Riesling is perfect for sipping on a hot summer's day on a patio or cottage dock.

The wine opens with a fresh bouquet of juicy peach and ripe apricot, complemented by subtle hints of Meyer lemon. On the palate, the wine is bright and refreshing, with a zesty acidity that is perfectly balanced by a creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of peach and apricot are joined by a delicate touch of honeyed sweetness that adds depth and complexity. This is a beautiful wine that is perfect for pairing with light seafood dishes or enjoying on its own as a refreshing aperitif.

Food Pairings: Baked brie, creamy cheeses, mac and cheese, fried foods.
