LCBO Note Status A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
Gold Medal winner at the 2018 National Wine Awards of Canada. TASTING NOTE: As good as the Carly's Block is, this is killer Riesling. The nose lights up with salinity, lime, grapefruit and racy wet-stone minerality. It's steely and taut on the palate despite 32 g/l of RS and shows vivid citrus, fresh squeezed lime, lemon zest and it all balanced on a razor's edge. Such incredible definition and freshness through the finish. Beautiful. Score - 93 (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, Aug. 1, 2018) Price $ 23.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
