For those of you who picked up the 2007 version of this wine a few months ago at the LCBO I hope you won't hold that against the '08. The '07 was tired by the time it hit the board's shelves; it was 3 years old and from a hot vintage that was not kind to Rieslings (especially with any age on them). On the other hand, the '08 should find a way into your cellar and you should feel free to hold it for the next 5+ years or so. Great fruit and acidity lead the charge with lemon, peach, green apple and a touch of Bartlett pear. Price: $15.00 - Rating: ****
