Riesling - Carly's Block, 2016

Shipped and sold by Tawse Winery

2016 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL ,11% ALC/VOL

Availability: In stock


Critic's Rating94 pts


The nose at first sniff is shy before opening up to reveal hints of anise, sweet citrus; mandarin in particular, crisp orchard apples and notes of river rock. On the tongue are notes of ripe pear to start followed by minerality and crisp acidity on the finish. Another stunning wine from Carly’s Block

Food Pairings: The beautiful balance of minerality, sweet citrus and acidity results in a wine that is a pleasure to pair with. Enjoy it with steamed mussels, cassoulet or a salad topped with fresh mozzarella cheese and heirloom tomatoes.

Riesling was a strength at Tawse in 2016 (and is in most years, to be sure), and the Carly's is a particularly impressive bottle. Biodynamically farmed old vines (planted late 1970s) make the difference here, showing evident density and power, and that almost impossible-to-acheive combination of complexity and weight on a featherlight, 10% alcohol frame. I love the genuine flavour intensity , the excellent balance and length. Whatever residual sugar there is on the palate is washed away on a wave of acids, leaving a saline, crisp acidulated-dry finish. This is surely one of the rieslings of the vintage in Canada, and should easily cellar into the late '20s, even if it's hard to resist right now. Brilliant stuff. Tasted June 2018.
