Apple, stone fruit and a touch of that distinctive diesel note that Riesling is so famous for. A bright, juicy palate with ideal fruit balance make this wine a joy to drink on its own or as a versatile food pairing wine.

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!
