One measure of Ontario's success in the wine world is the fact that so many different varieties seem to be happy there -- Chardonnay and Pinot can both be outstanding, while Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Gamay all show great promise. (And that’s before we start talking about Ontario’s dazzling panoply of icewines.) Riesling, though, may still be the most successful variety of all, as this assured dry table wine shows. The scents trace out citrus and cologne in pithy, zesty style, while the wine is no less zesty and pithy in the mouth: crunchy apple and juicy clementine with a twist of lemon peel. Crisp natural acidity, balanced and fruit-resonant, leaves the mouth tingling after every sip.
