“…delicious and quite special. It offers cool-climate, dry-riesling aromas of sharp citrus notes, gun-flint minerality and notions of petrol. There’s a bracing line of laser-like flavour streaking over the palate with tangy lime, passion fruit and saline mineral notes to the fore.” 91 points. --Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, September 2018.
“Another fine Old Vines Niagara riesling from Château des Charmes, one of the strongest wines in the portfolio in my view, with a consistent track record dating back now many years. The 2015 is a particularly ripe and rich … offering intense lime aroma/flavours on an essentially dry frame (8 grams/litre RS), braced by comfortable acids and given a breadth and depth by an additional range of honeyed, candied citrus and pear/orchard fruit flavours. Length is very good to excellent.” 90 points. --John Szabo, winealign.com, September 2018.
“A beaut with spicy or higher acidic foods. Lots of orchard fruit character.” 90 points. --Dean Tudor, Gothic Epicures, September 2018.
“Bright, pale straw colour; slightly oily, minerally, honeyed grapefruit nose; light-bodied, off-dry, tangerine, grapefruit and lemon flavour; beautifully balanced and lingering with a touch of honey on the finish.” 90 points. --Tony Aspler, tonyaspler.com, August 2019
"Always a special wine from St. David’s. It’s a lime bomb on the nose with notes of lemon, crisp green apple and profound minerality. It’s zippy and fresh on the palate, a smidge of honey, with lime, grapefruit, ginger, stony minerality and balancing acidity. Should age well for another five years but already hitting its stride." 91 points. --Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, August 2019
