Riesling, 2022

Shipped and sold by SpearHead Winery

2022 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 13.5% ALC/VOL

Tasting Notes: The nose displays jasmine and lime with a hint of crushed rock and flint. The palate opens with a blast of fresh lemon, crab apple, and mineral notes. Great tension and balance. Pair with fish tacos, butter chicken, crab legs, or dim sum.

Winemaking: The Riesling is entirely hand-harvested. 50% of the fruit is whole bunch pressed, while the other 50% undergoes maceration and cold soaks on skins for 24 hours. This process provides complex fruit aromas and increased mouth texture. The settled juice is then fermented in stainless steel tank.

Residual Sugar: 9.18 g/L
