Canada — Ontario • $20.95 • 89/100

This is the fourth release of the 2014 traditional method sparkling Riesling from Tawse, and it continues to show very well with some interesting Riesling character. It is a lighter straw colour. A slightly mineral-rubber attack is followed by waxy, honeyed, and lightly floral notes, and then a core of crisp lemon, green apple and honeydew fruit. The wine is off-dry, with high acidity that largely disguises the residual sugar, and very modest alcohol — an overall balance that keeps the palate fresh and bright, with a zingy, lingering, lemon-stony finish. What an excellent value! • LCBO Release 03/04/2017 • LCBO id#370361 • Find it at your nearest LCBOTAWSE WINERY INC. (Agent)
