Charles Baker Riesling, Niagara, Canada, 2019 (750ml)
Vivid, youthful nose of white peach, lemon, Empire apple, and a hint of melba toast. As it warms in the glass, the classic Ontario limestone you expect wafts up from the glass with a little beeswax in tow. Lovely poise on the palate at this age, with youthful acids set against textbook juicy Riesling fruit. More citrus on the palate at present, all lemony-mandarin over apple and the promise of papaya.
