Description

Bold assertive aromas of Macintosh apple, peach skin and a touch of that varietal telltale smell of diesel. A vibrant textural palate that finishes with a jolt of acidity similar to touching your tongue to the terminal posts of a 9 volt battery.

Food Parings: A refreshing summer sipper that will pair wonderfully with fresh oysters or try it with your favourite sushi.

Critic’s Rating:

89 pts

A crisp, dry, racy and refreshing Riesling with lots of apple, lime juice and zest, some more exotic Asian citrus fruits and a nice apple blossom undertone. Zingy, zippy and with good power and length. (Tasted July 2015)

- Rhys Pender, MW, WineAlign

Connoisseur Note(s):

This is from an Osoyoos vineyard, blended with three percent muscat ottonel. It's a youthful, quite tender riesling that could use another year in bottle, and/or some aeration. The nose is a bit closed and vaguely sulphur-bound, with grapefruit, chive and green pear aromas and flavours. It's lighter bodied (10.8%) and fairly dry, with tart acidity, some greenness and sourness on the finish. Very good length. Tasted July 2015. 87 points.

Tasting Notes

This was a featured wine from February's Premium Wine Club.

 

Name: 2014 Riesling
Geographical Indication: Okanagan Valley, B.C.
Variety: 97% Riesling, 3% Muscat Ottonel
Vineyard: Riesling – Amalia Vineyard, West Bench; Muscat Ottonel – Stag’s Hollow Vineyard, Okanagan Falls
Alcohol: 10.6%
Cases Produced: 840

 

Appearance: Bright, gold throughout with a slight green hue. 

 

Nose: Medium+ intensity, candied lemon peel, Mandarin orange, lime leaf. 

 

Palate: Medium+ concentration, vibrant acidity, Granny Smith apple, lemonade, pink grapefruit, coriander, fresh minerality with a very small hint of residual sugar. 

 

Quality: A very good quality Okanagan Riesling that is easy to drink now, but will develop a few more layers of character with a couple more years of age. 

 

Food pairings: Pad Thai, California roll sushi, hot and sour mushroom soup, mild blue cheese, grilled pork chops, fried chicken. 

 

Wine Writer’s Comment: There is no stopping the vibrant array of delicious, quality Rieslings coming out of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley! There are a few extra choices made by winemaker Dwight Sick that make this one extra appealing. The use of old oak to not impart flavor, but add a little texture is a great direction. A little lees-stirring adds a richer mouthfeel, while that tiny three percent of Muscat Ottonel in the mix adds a pinch of tropical spice. Sure, you can lay it down for a couple of years and wait for honeyed and more nuanced layers to appear, but diving into it right now is mighty rewarding. Well done!
