Tawse 2012 Quarry Road Vineyard Riesling

By / Wine + Drinks / December 6th, 2013 / 1

Tawse winery started out by being known as a premium producer of  top quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producer, but over the years they have added other grape varieties to the mix (Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Gamay) – one they seem to do really well with is a staple of Ontario grape growing and winemaking, Riesling – here Michael reaches for that that last gasp of summer as he talks about the single vineyard Quarry Road Riesling … outside.


Michael is an award-winning journalist: Promoting the Promoters Award Cuvée 2010 and Ontario Wine Awards Journalist of the Year 2012.  He is also a national and international wine judge - Ontario Wine Awards, All Canadian Wine Championships; Best of Riesling — Germany; Essencia do Vinho — "Top Wines of Portugal".  He is currently the President of the Wine Writers Circle of Canada and the wine columnist for Ottawa Life and Grand magazine as well as regular contributor to Tidings, and Grapevine ... his reviews have also appeared in the LCBO Vintages magazine. Michael has also added a YouTube channel to his activities where he reviews bottles of great Ontario wine on a weekly basis. In whatever he does, it is Michael’s desire to educate, inspire and encourage others to grow their own love and enthusiasm for wine – and to realize that it is their palate that ultimately makes the decision.
