    Tasting Notes:
    Our winemaker hit upon a real gem with this spectacular blend of Riesling and Gewürztraminer. Customers come back time and again for Touché. Which offers a nose of Juicy Fruit gum, honeydew melon, lychee, pineapple and citrus.

    On the palate, Touché is all fruit, highlighting sweet pineapple, melon, grapefruit, orange essence, peach and lime.

    This wine compliments Pad Thai, spring roll, spicy samosa roll, and citrus based chicken and seafood. Try it with garlic based dishes too! Or just on its own.

    Available at select LCBO stores.

    Oxley Estate Riesling 2013 Review

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    We love Riesling… and we love how it thrives in our climate, displaying the uniqueness of our terroir. Our 2013 is appealing to the eye, with its pretty colour of pale straw, and enchanting on the nose, with delicate aromas of white flowers, peaches and a hint of almond. Enjoy the juice-charged palate… grapefruit, lemon and apple join a structured, mineral backbone. The finish is long, dry, clean… and asking for your favourite cheese.

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    These grapes are left longer on the vine and hand picked to ensure only the premium ripe fruit. Only 35 cases of this premier limited vintage were made. The wine displays elegant aromas, a full and creamy texture followed by a surprisingly crisp finish.

      Winemaker’s Notes:
      This is a dry, German-style Riesling with a great nose. It is juicy and lip smacking, with a long finish. It is food friendly and can be enjoyed on its own or with a surprising variety of meals. We really like our Riesling.

      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.

      3.33 overall score

      Winemaker’s Notes:
      Radiant golden tones mirror the bright citrus notes in this ultra ripe Riesling. Zippy lemon and aromas of baking spices create a delightful impression of lemon meringue pie. This all supported by a classic long-lasting finish.

      Would pair great with shellfish, green salads and creamy mild cheeses.
