TASTING NOTE: This wine honours Ontario-born Ferguson \"Fergie\" Jenkins. He was the first Canadian Cy Young Award winner and the first Canadian inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame. This Riesling is mouth-watering and easy drinking, with sharply defined apple, lime, honey and mineral. The residual sweetness is perfectly balanced by the fresh acidity. Ideal for spicy ribs or a hot chicken curry. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2017) Price $ 16.95
