Wine Pick of the Week

By Natalie Maclean

Flat Rock Cellars Riesling 2012
V.Q.A., Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario

Soooooo lovely, especially for your Canada Day barbecues featuring fresh seafood or grilled veggies! Apricot and honeysuckle aromas give this wine a lovely, natural fruit fleshiness and sweetness, but this wine is never cloying as it’s beautifully balanced with mouth-watering acidity for a wide range of dishes. Luscious and seductive with a medium body and long finish. Perfect for sunny decks, quiet docks and babbling brooks. Highly recommended.
