This is my first taste of the 2015 CSV Riesling, and I found it fascinating. It is very pale straw. The nose is currently tight and closed, with a nuance of Riesling rubber-mineral, later opening out to show white flowers, lime juice, green apples, underripe pears and honeydew melon. The wine is almost dry, with high, firm acidity that informs the palate with a stony, mineral core. The fruit clings to the edges and a lime-apple residue lingers on the chalky finish. This wine is all coiled within itself, and needs some more time to relax and expand. But what potential! • LCBO Release 03/06/2017 • LCBO id#566026 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCAVE SPRING CELLARS LTD., (Agent)
