Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: an Ontario riesling that won’t break the bank


Published:

Here’s a bargain-priced Riesling from Ontario. Pale straw in colour, with a green tint. A nose of petrol and grapefruit with a lifted honeyed note. It’s medium-bodied and off-dry, with grapefruit and lime flavours, plus a touch of honey and a light spritz on the palate.

Food match: pork loin; light curried dishes

 

Inniskillin Winemaker’s Series Two Vineyards Riesling, 2010, Niagara, $14.75. Vintages #105387
