Someone once asked me if it's the reds or whites from the Lake Erie North Shore that I prefer ... usually it's the reds and I have yet to be totally impressed by a Riesling from the region, until now. The Lake Erie North Shore is just a hotter clime than Niagara, being the most southerly in Ontario, and the Riesling grape just hasn't adjusted well to the temps. But Tanya Mitchell, winemaker, seems to have found herself some nice Riesling grapes to play with. This one has what Riesling lovers should like: lime, green apple and mineral stoniness right down the middle. Crisp, deliciously fruity and refreshing with just the right amount of umph; and at a price that's as hard to resist as the wine. Price: $12.95 - Rating: ****+
