With an extra year of resting in bottle since my last tasting of it, this wine is now starting to show it's real personality, walking right in the footsteps of the 2018 older brother (that I gave 94pts to). The precision and definition of flavours in this wine is absolutely remarkable, reaching a near perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. On the nose, there is the undeniable aroma of lemon, lime, ginger, jasmine tea and a spark of flint. The palate if filed with energy and tension, delivering a gracious mix of zesty and confit citrus, green apple, pear, lemongrass and pickled ginger. The finish is flinty and stony, reflecting the amazing site of the Robert's Block in the Vinemount Ridge sub-appelation. This wine should age gracefully for another decade. Sadly, no Robert’s Block Rieslings where produced in 2020, 2021 or 2022. Get this one while you can! (CWC, 14/4/23). 240 cases made.

Erosion from the several streams that cross the Vinemount Ridge appellation have produced a gentle, undulating landscape with many shallow east- and south-facing slopes, unique within the Niagara Peninsula. This sub-appellation delivers fantastic Riesling, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc.
