Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Marnie Old's Notes - Lightweight wines get little respect, especially when they feature a hint of sweetness. But, wines like this snappy young white from one of the Niagara Peninsula's leading Riesling producers are undeniably delicious and surprisingly food- friendly. Made by halting fermentation early, just before all grape sugar is converted to alcohol, this German-inspired style retains a pleasing touch of sweetness that can be a sommelier's lifesaver with the most difficult dishes to pair – namely those that are overtly sweetened themselves or that feature a prominent kick of spicy heat.

    wine spectator: 90 points. nicely balances between peach, apricot, and grapefruit aromas and flavors and the bracing structure in a dry style. comes together with lingering fruit and freshness on the long finish. drink now through 2014.
