2017 Riesling Icewine, Lincoln Lakeshore – Rated 95, Editors’ Choice
Thick, concentrated flavours of apricot marmalade, papaya and tangerine dive deep down into the core. This fruit-driven flavour riot is amply annotated by a lush seam of caramel, and the flavours go on and on. One half size bottle will happily serve 4-to-6 sweet tooths.

2017 Riesling Estate, Beamsville Bench – Rated 93, Editors’ Choice
Sourced from the estate’s oldest vines, this mineral-drenched, bone-dry wine fills the palate with texture and deep flavours. Rather than flesh, the emphasis is on skin phenolics—grapefruit pith and peel in particular. There’s a sense of light oiliness, not at all unpleasant, and a graceful, lingering finish.

2017 Riesling Indian Summer, Lincoln Lakeshore – Rated 93,
Editors’ Choice
Solidly in the dessert wine camp in this vintage, this checks in at 102 g/L residual sugar. Peach, apricot and ripe nectarine fruit flavours abound, with a drip of honey. It’s juicy and big, but never cloying, and finishes with a suggestion of dry straw.

2017 Riesling, Niagara Peninsula – Rated 91
This tart and delicate wine packs a lot of flavour in its dry frame. Grapefruit and nectarine are the dominant fruit flavours. It’s sappy and long, with a faint hint of petrol.
