"I love EVERYTHING about this wine - that’s what makes Riesling so amazing!" - Lydia Tomek, Winemaker

Tasting Notes: This aromatic white is elegant, fresh, spritly, crisp, yet well-balanced. On the nose, this wine offers aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, and minerality. The palate will discover flavours of green apple, lemon, lime, flint and white stone. An early bottling captured some natural CO2 which enhances the mouth feel and crispness of this wine.

Food Pairing Notes: This Riesling is very versatile, can be paired with Oysters, fresh scallops or lemon chicken. Riesling would round out a Greek meal perfectly. On the other hand, this would also work great with dishes that have a little spice, think Dan Dan Noodles, Butter Chicken, Vindaloo Curry. Pair with salty cheese, like gorgonzola, aged gouda, or feta.

Winemaker Notes: This Riesling comes from our Four Mile Creek Appellation site, with various clonal crosses and a blend of the east and west blocks. This site provided us cool night conditions in the Fall which captured the freshness and acidity of this wine. These grapes were harvested and tripled berry sorted and then pressed gently and long. Various lots were fermented at different temperatures and with different inoculums (wild, organic, and conventional yeast strains). The soft petulance lifts the wines and preserves its freshness and celebrates the great weight of this wine. It’s a juicy wine with just the right amount of unfermented sugar to balance it out.

Residual Sugar: 13.8 g/L

The nose is gushing with lime, white peach, nectarine and stony/saline minerality. There’s a subtle wet stone/savoury note on the palate but the lime/nectarine and peach fruits are the dominant feature through a lively and balanced finish.
