Matt’s review:  13th Street Winery’s popular June’s Vineyard Riesling is made from old Clone 49 Riesling sourced straight from Alsace, France, which contributes to its expressive varietal characteristics but with the added benefits from the limestone influence of the Creek Shores appellation vineyard. June’s Vineyard Riesling shows crisp stonefruit, lime, bees wax and expressive petrol notes with refreshing limestone minerality making this beautiful Ontario Riesling a fantastic choice for just about anything you can imagine.  Enjoy as an aperitif, or pair with grilled seafood, oysters on the half shell, or grilled Thai burgers with pineapple salsa – a personal favourite.
