2018 Tawse Quarry Road Organic Riesling

In a perfect world a reviewer would not be influenced by their personal biases. Sadly, that is not a world I live in. I have been turned off repeatedly by sweet rieslings, just so not to my tastes. Some will love them, and to the I can only say, have at them. Sadly at 26 g/l and 10.5% alcohol this is not moving in the right direction of my taste buds. Pale in color with a honey suckle nose. On the mid palate the wine is dominated by honey suckle that matches the nose. There’s some apricot and even a hint of ice wine like notes on this wine. It’s slightly syrupy in nature. On the medium length finish the wine displays lots of acidity and syrupy notes along with apricots. This is quite a bold rich wine, but I would have a very hard time recommending a food to pair with this wine, it borders on a dessert wine to my tastes. From the LCBO web site, check stock

Floral with lime, lemon, nectarine and mineral notes. Complex and pure with excellent weight and texture. A precise and exquisite Ontario Riesling. Great with spicy Asian foods.
