Sandbanks Riesling 2007

I really hate to do this again, but this is another wine not available in the LCBO. We picked this one up at the winery back in the fall. We took a trip out to Prince Edward county for the 2 days and had a great time. The people, wineries and food were excellent.

Ok, back to the wine review. This is a lovely varietal Riesling. I would put it smack in the middle of a Kabinett and a Spatlese. This has a slight bit of sweetness intermingled with that granny smith green apple flavor and it works well together. The wine has a bit of the honey/syrup texture. Very impressive wine for the price. You could close your eyes and believe this to be a German Riesling. I wish I had bought more, but I guess I will just have to go back …

From the winery’s web site:
Riesling VQA (0) $15.95 750ml bottle
Refreshing dry white wine with fresh cut lime and mineral flavours. Lovely balance of ripe fruit and acidity. An excellent aperitif, great with seafood.
