Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: an Ontario riesling with a touch of sweetness


Published:

Winemaker Natalie Spytkowsky has blended back unfermented riesling juice to give this Ontario wine a touch of sweetness. I tasted the 2010 vintage, and it’s equally good. It has honeyed grapefruit flavour that is balanced with fresh acidity.

Food match: Thai dishes; pork and apple sauce

$14.95. Rosewood Natalie’s Süssreserve Riesling 2009, Vintages #258806
