Wine of the Week for February 13, 2006

Peller Estates Dry Riesling VQA 2005 $ 10.25
Style: W3
Ontario: Niagara

Here's more proof that Ontario is one of the great terroirs for Riesling. With a medium straw colour, this example shows pleasant aromas of peach and perfume and just the right touch of petrol. Very rewarding on the palate, with a fresh and crisp acidity, juicy fruit flavours and a slightly tart close. Medium bodied, with very good length, it offers an authentic Riesling profile at an attractive price. A good partner for quiche, ocean fish, or pork roast with cloves.
