The CSV Riesling is one of Niagara’s benchmarks, and the 2015 is fascinating. The wine 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, under-ripe pears and honeydew melon. It 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 03/24/2017 • LCBO id#566026 • Find it at your nearest LCBO
