2009 Wildass Stratus Riesling

This wine comes from the Niagara on the lake region. Pale in color, on the nose is some minerality consistent with wines from this region. On the mid pallet are some apple juice flavors, slightly sweet but not too much. The wine is on the lighter side of medium on the finish with the flavor lingering nicely. Apples are dominant front to back. This is a very food friendly wine, I would give it an 88-89. Consistently good.

A great introduction to tomorrow’s Sip a Savour event. A fabulous tasting of Ontario wines. If you haven’t been before, GO! This year it is being held in the historic Roundhouse! Year after year this has been a great event!

From the winery’s web site:
2009 Wildass Riesling

The aromatic profile exudes green apple and fresh pear character with subtle citrus notes in the backdrop. These aromatic notes reappear on the palate with heightened flavours of ripe, ruby grapefruit. The mouthfeel is soft and balanced with a refreshing spike of acidity on the finish.
