LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: Sourced from vines over 37 years of age that Hermann Weis brought to Ontario from Weingut St. Urbans-Hof in Mosel. This is a juicy, floral, zesty Riesling that delivers a wealth of lime, apple, grapefruit, peach and mineral tones. The sweetness is artfully balanced by the acidity, giving the wine perfect drive and lift. Just gorgeous. (Vintages panel, Aug. 2017) Price $ 19.95
