Colchester Ridge Estate Winery (CREW)

Winemaker’s Notes:
This wine shows off the terroir of the area with an enticing nose of floral notes mingled with ‘wet stone’ minerality. On the palate experience a highly viscous wine full of stone fruit and mineral notes with a squeeze of lime on the finish. Drink now with salads containing fruit or nuts, spicy Asian or Indian food or strong blue cheeses.

    Bernie Gorski’s wine making experience is really starting to show in his 2011 Riesling. A wine maker who made some terrific red wines in the early years of the winery is now making some top shelf white wines now too. White wines take a lot more TLC, and with little room for error Bernie’s white wines are now among the finest in the region.

    There is really not a lot more that I can add that is not already in the winemaker’s notes above. The tasting notes are spot on. In addition to the citrus notes, I picked up some hints of apple on the palate. This wine’s minerality a bonus, it doesn’t come across as petrol or kerosene notes as often suggested when describing a Rieslings minerality, the wet stone suggest is perfect!

    CREW continues to offer excellent Lake Erie North Shore wines at very reasonable prices. This wine is a steal at $14!
