VQA Beamsville Bench

2008 Thirty Bench

2008 Thirty Bench Riesling, VQA Beamsville Bench

The second wine of Oyster Dinner.

From a different terroir of Niagara Escarpment. This is just their estate level riesling, but again, a fantastic value. Much denser, muskier minerality. Citrus, as if often a characteric of young Niagara riesling. Acidity shows as much higher, tighter. Lingering finish.

This is a much better pair for the oysters. It's the acidity and more overt minerality, I'm convinced.
