Henry of Pelham Reserve Off-Dry Riesling 2009 (Ontario) - Wine Review



This off-dry white wine is a perennial favourite of mine, as I've purchased the 2007 vintage 3 times (twice in 2008, once in 2009) and enjoyed it each and every time. Purchased recently from the Jan 21 LCBO Vintages release, this promises to be just as good...

HENRY OF PELHAM RESERVE OFF-DRY RIESLING 2009 - VQA Short Hills Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada (#557165) (MD) - $15.95

Tasting Note:
Candied lime, citrus, mineral, wax and petrol aromas. Tangy citrus, lime, with a slight touch of sweetness on the palate. Bright seam of acidity cuts through the middle. Off-dry. Could be cellared a few more years, but is definitely delicious now. Recommended if you like wines that are slightly sweet. Will be enjoying this with spinach & potatoes.

  1. Very interesting web site you got there. Especially for your Canadian wines!
    I recently had a Cabernet Franc from Ontario. Unfortunately it wasn’t me. This Riesling seems to be much more attractive. I will try some other Canadian wines as soon as I can lay my hands on a bottle. Cheers ;-)

  2. Thank you for your comments, Oh Dae-su. Personally, I think Cab Franc is better when blended, regardless of Origin. As for Ontario Rieslings - they are VERY good, comparable with the best, I would say.
