Given its climate and soil, Ontario is known for its stellar production of Riesling and Dessert Wines and as a result, a chance to try a small lot Riesling, from a credible producer is hard to ignore.

On colour, the Rockway Small Lot Block 12-150 Riesling 2012 holds a fantastic golden hue. On the nose, light scents of pear, green apple and some mineral are noted. On the palate, lemon, peach, oak and mineral are present. You’ll definitely note this wine’s light approach to its mouthfeel, with a short finish.

If you happen to have a bottle of the Rockway Small Lot Block 12-150 Riesling 2012 in your possession, I would encourage you to lay it down and indulge in 2016 when the wine has had additional time to mature.

This wine retails at the LCBO for $18.95.

We gave this wine a score of 3 out of 5.
