|TASTING NOTE: Sharp spice and floral aromas waft from this just-barely off-dry, value-packed, Niagara riesling. It streaks across the palate with great Úlan, blood orange, tart lemon-lime, notions of white peach and flinty minerality mingling with white peach and ripe pear. It's medium bodied with good texture and a clean, crisp finish and aftertaste. Pair with skillet-seared freshwater fish or grilled calamari. Score - 90 (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, Oct. 23, 2017)
