This fresh, fruity wine is a popular take on Peninsula Riesling. One of the most alluring traits of Riesling is the grape's ability to provide a precise reflection of where it's grown - cue the mirrored label and narcissist tag. This typically rides the line between dry and off-dry, delivering bright citrus fruit tones alongside pear and apple, as well as the distinct, defined mineral note that is so present in Ontario Riesling. Very versatile - you can enjoy this as a sipper or paired with spiced curries. Price $ 18.95
