WHAT: 13th Street Funk Vineyard Riesling 2005 (white) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Niagara Peninsula
WHY: You won’t see this small-scale producer on the shelves too often, so don’t snore or you might not score. The Riesling is classic Niagara stuff, with lots of nose action and zippy energy for the old buds. If you can’t find it, try 13th Street’s swell 2006 Chardonnay Musqué.
PRICE: 750 ml/$18
AVAILABILITY: At selected Vintages outlets (product #56564)
