WineDiva's Review

Outstanding, precise, racy.
The Sperling Vineyards old vines Riesling date back to 1978, making them among the first plantings of Riesling in Canada.
A simply outstanding Riesling made from vines nearing 40 years of age. You can expect notes of beeswax and marmalade, petrol and crunchy green apples, white peaches and spring blossoms to drift out of the glass. It has gorgeous weight, some mineral heft, is racy, precise, and boasts a delightfully long and clean finish.
As reviewed in Vines Magazine, holiday 2017.
