Pearl Morissette, Cuvée Black Ball Riesling, Twenty Mile Bench, Ontario 2012

Rating: 16.5/20pts
A cult wine producer in Canada, engaged in minimal intervention winemaking (I find there is huge bottle variation, with some wines marked by off odours). This one, though, is just fine – full of minerals, jasmine, honeyed nuts and citrus aromas and flavours, all clean and precise.
