Tasting Notes

Purity of aroma typifies Giesen Estate Marlborough Riesling 2012 with notes of lemon and lime zest, jasmine, ginger and ‘petrichor’, which means the aroma of rain on dry earth. The palate has a succulent sweetness and intensity, reminiscent of lemon curd combined with the vibrant flavours of mandarin. Lovely and dry, the mineral acidity provides a structural backbone and length to the palate.

What I have to say about Geisen Estate Marlborough Riesling 2012:

Fruity, sweet but not annoyingly so. THIS is a fun wine and something that should be shared with a group of friends  as we watch the sunset from my porch on a summer evening in Toronto. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Review: Henry of Pelham Family Estate Pinot Grigio 2011


2011 Pinot GrigioWhat critics and the Pelhma Estate are saying about 2011 Pinot Grigio:



“Could not be nicer” – 2012 Edition of Billy’s Best Bottles
“A crowd pleaser if ever there was one. This is the first crack at the popular Italian varietal for the Speck brothers – and a well done one at that. A round, fruity nose full of ripe orchard and citrus fruit and follows through on the palate with ripe white peach, lemon meringue, and candied grapefruit, with sweet raw almond on the finish.”
– Courtney Henderson, Tonic Magazine, November 2011

4 stars – Tony Aspler
Silver (2011) – Intervin

Our Pinot Grigio breaks New World tradition as a refreshing wine with white cranberry and melon flavours. Taste the new-Old-World in our Niagara vineyards.

Winemaker’s Notes

• Made from selected Niagara vineyards.
• Harvest Date: September 3rd through September 23rd, 2010
• Fermentation and aging completely in stainless steel to maintain the fruit’s delicacy
and subtlety, bottling under screwcap to preserve fruit aromatics and freshness.”

What I have to say about 2011 Pinot Grigio:

“Anything that gives me rotgut after little more than a small glass and a half is being far better marketed than it’s taste deserves.”

This news comes as no surprise.
I’ve known for years just bad the situation is with the Big Three telecommunications companies, and unless people start standing up to them, it’s just going to get worse. The government either needs to show they’re serious, or should just stop pretending that they’re interested in making transparency and fairness a part of our consumer lives
