Erie Shore Vineyard 2008 Riesling

Every New Year’s Eve a group of local wine tasters gather to select the “best of the best” of one varietal from the wineries of Lake Erie North Shore and Pelee Island. This year ten Rieslings were blind tasted and Erie Shore Vineyard’s 2008 Riesling took the top spot.

Seven of the ten Rieslings in this year NYE tasting were from the 2010 vintage. A warm year which showed in the wines as many of them had lower acidity.

Erie Shore’s Riesling offered a nice balance of acidity and candied fruit notes, a reflection of the 2008 vintage.
