Wine Review: This white gold colored Riesling from Canada opens with a peach and orange peel bouquet with hints of bee’s wax and pine resin. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, mouthwatering and bright. The flavor profile is an apricot tea, lime, and saline blend with notes of green apple. We also detected some hints of honeycomb and pineapple as well. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Riesling would pair well with oysters on the half shell. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Pale yellow.
Nose: Concentrated aromas of pineapple, candied lemon, yellow plum, and almond paste; hints of white cherry, white flowers, and biscuit.
Palate: Dry and medium bodied; lush up front with ripe Honeydew and grapefruit tones; the middle shows richly extracted papaya, orange rind and lemon curd flavors, a firm, stony core, rounded edges, and mild salinity throughout; the finish is crisp and generous, with lengthy notes of peach preserve, citrus peel., ginger root and fresh pastry.
Food Pairings: Lobster bisque, sashimi, sautéed trout, and lemon-chicken.
