I particularly enjoy the Rieslings from the small “Steel Post” vineyard. There is a hint of mineral-rubber on the nose, underlying vibrant notes of lime juice and zest, green apples and honeydew melon. While the wine is definitely off-dry, the vivid acidity keeps the palate crisp and nervy. Slightly riper grapefruit and white peach flavours add to the green fruit that repeats on the palate, and the finish dries and lingers as the fruit submerges into a stony firmness. As always, excellent. • LCBO Release 03/24/2017 • LCBO id#0 • Find it at your nearest LCBO
