A slight change to layout today as I discuss a Riesling we enjoyed on a nice spring evening. This particular Riesling is the 2013 variant by Cave Spring Cellars out of Niagara.

We choose this wine as a nice pairing to some home-made drunk mussels. I gotta say, it worked beautifully.

Cave Spring is located in the Niagara region and all of their wines are grown on site and are officially VQA certified. Ontario seems to produce a great riesling so we were very excited about this one.

This wine is available at the LCBO for $14.95 and it sits at 11% ABV.

Appearance: Very faded straw. Very low viscosity.
Aroma: Bartlett pears, unripe peaches. Very mineral like wet slate. Faint gasoline (in a good way!) with wet grass.
Taste: High acidity. Sweet with Mango and ripe pear. Very light mouth feel.
Aftertaste: Fresh pair.
Overall: Nice summer sipper. Paired well with mussels. Recommend something light but spicy to go with it.
