Clear and bright with a pretty aroma of tangerine, pink grapefruit, mineral and floral. This just off-dry, light-bodied Riesling has mouthwatering acidity, and pink grapefruit, apple and white peach flavours that awaken the palate (better to be awakened by Riesling than by a Rooster). A bowl full of refreshing citrus fruit flavours and site-specific minerality linger on the finish. Enjoy while young and fresh.

Pair with citrus glazed salmon; lemon and spring pea risotto; sushi; fish and chips; pan-fried fish filets; Dungeness crab cakes with chipotle lime mayo; summer salads with light vinaigrettes; lemon chicken skewers.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 vintage was a featured wine in March's Wine Club package, 2019.

 

Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

 

Geographical Indication: VQA Okanagan Valley, BC
Vineyard: Hidden Terrace Vineyard in Oliver, BC
Cases Produced: 2,650

 

Appearance: Bright, pale straw in colour.
Nose: Nose of grapefruit and lemon with a hint of petrol.
Palate: Light-bodied, crisply dry, unctuous mouth-feel with flavours of lime and lemon with a suggestion of honey in mid-palate but finishes tartly dry. Very Rheinhessen in style.
Quality: Outstanding. Drinking well now, but will hold for several years.

 

Food Pairing: Cajun shrimp linguine, camembert cheese, Greek salad, honey mustard glazed ham, crostini with avocado, crab and flake salt.
