Canada — Ontario • $19.95 • WD Score 89/100

This wine is a long-standing Niagara stalwart, from Vineland’s iconic St. Urban Vineyard, one of Niagara’s earliest Riesling plantings. On the first tasting, a little mustiness dulled the nose, although the bones of the wine stood up to the test, but the second tasting was quite fine. Subtle aromas of lemon and red apple fruit are complemented by notes of apple blossoms and hints of ripe melon and white peach. The wine is medium-dry, with balanced acidity that allows the residual sugar to play as a honeyed richness, and then gathers itself into a firm, stony edge towards the finish. A classy and classic Niagara Riesling. • Tasted 2018-01-06 • LCBO id#38117 • Find it at your nearest LCBOVINELAND ESTATE WINES LTD., (Agent)
