Description

This Riesling is brilliantly clear and bright. The nose is bursting with fresh, ripe citrus and honey. The wine is crisp, characterized by electric acidity with flavors of Meyer lemon, white grapefruit and tangerine. The characteristic minerality hovers in the background. Wonderfully contrasting and balancing sweetness throughout.

Connoisseur Note(s):

A bright lemon zest note comes forth on the nose of this Niagara riesling, with pear, fresh red apple and subtle honey notes in tow. It's light-bodied and off-dry, offering more fresh citrus and honey notes as well as an apple candy component and subtle chalkiness that are a lot of fun. 88 points.
