PEARL MORISSETTE CUVÉE BLACK BALL RIESLING 2014

Canada — Ontario • $36.20 • 88.5/100

The wine is medium yellow-gold in colour. Aromas of lanolin and savoury, dried herbs surround a core of lemons and ripe apples. The wine is bone-dry, with elevated but not crisp acidity (the wine has gone through full malolactic conversion), and medium alcohol and body. There is some generosity, attractive fruit, and a drying, stony minerality. Judged fully blind, it would be viewed as a pleasant, broad wine — but it’s not obviously Riesling, let alone typical Niagara Riesling, whether you think that is good or bad. The current wine was fermented with natural yeast in concrete eggs, and kept on lees for eight months. • Tasted 2017-05-27 • LCBO id#416073 • Find it at your nearest LCBOPEARL MORISSETTE ESTATE WINERY (Agent)
