Canada — Ontario • $15.95 • 89/100

While roughly half of the fruit from this wine is from the estate’s Beamsville Bench vineyard, the balance is sourced from vineyards in the Lincoln Lakeshore and Creek Shore appellations nearer the lake, hence the VQA Niagara Peninsula designation is used. The wine is definitely off-dry, though firm acidity balances the palate. The nose is lightly floral, with lemon-lime, red apple, melon and white peach notes, while on the palate the delicate sweetness adds a sense of richness to the fruit. The acidity firms on the finish, drying the sweetness and adding a mineral element. This is a superb value — the largest production of Riesling from Cave Spring, widely available through the LCBO system and highly recommended. • Tasted 2017-01-14 • LCBO id#234583 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCAVE SPRING CELLARS LTD., (Agent)
