Inniskillin Winemaker's Series Two Vineyards Riesling 2011 (Ontario) - Wine Review



My usual trend of opening wines at home is to switch between red and white wines, but looking back my recent tasting notes, including last night's wine, I see that I've now opened 4 whites in a row! I think we know that the next one MUST be a red.

Sunday night's wine was received as a gift back in May and I chose to open it on this night because of guests that typically enjoy the sweeter style of the wine spectrum.

INNISKILLIN WINEMAKER'S SERIES TWO VINEYARDS RIESLING 2011 - VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada (#105387) (D) - $14.75

2011 Inniskillin Winemaker's Series Two Vineyards Riesling from VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
Tasting Note:
Screw cap. Medium-high intensity petrol dominates the nose with pleasant floral undertones and notable mandarin oranges. Lively acidity and medium-bodied with nice aroma replays, plus slate on palate. Off-dry (slightly sweet). Finish is long finish with slate + delicious honey coming to the fore. Reminds me of a Mosel. Flavours were very complementary when paired with Dungeness crab curry. However, it paired really well with Vidal Icewine Jelly (from Niagara) & Crackers. Enjoyable overall. Score: 87 pts
