Description

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Riesling is perfectly balanced with bright fruit aromas of crisp apples, lime and tropical fruits and a delicate hint of sweetness. On the palate, it is rich with a beautiful, zesty finish. Pair it with spicy dishes or seafood, including lobster and prawns.

Winemaker Notes

Estate grown grapes were blended with a small portion of Vernon and Similkameen grapes for our 2016 Riesling. Grapes were whole cluster pressed and cold settled then fermented using various commercial yeasts to diversify the aromatic complexity. A slow and cold ferment ensured the retention of these aromas. Fermentation was halted to retain a residual sugar of 6.7g/l to balance taste.
