Tasting Notes

This was a featured wine in June's Wine Club package, 2020.

 

Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

 

Geographical Indication: BC VQA Okanagan Valley
Vineyard: Select vineyards in Oliver, BC
Residual Sugar: 25 g/L
Cases Produced: 175

 

Appearance: Golden colour, quite deep for a three-year-old Riesling.
Nose: Minerally, lightly floral nose of grapefruit with a honeyed tone.
Palate: Medium-bodied, dry; bitter orange and lime flavours finishing on a crab apple note with some astringency from grape skin tannins.
Quality: Very Good+. 89 points. The bouquet will blossom with another year in bottle.

 

Food Pairing: Cajun spiced pork chops, smoked trout with capers and cream cheese, pumpkin ravioli with sage butter sauce, lemongrass chicken stir-fry, and sweet and spicy grilled shrimp skewers.
