A naturally-expressed Riesling, unlocking an Okanagan terroir suited well for this grape. A true slow wine that ticked away for ten months as the cellar went through four seasons.
Awards & Ratings
This wine was featured in June's Wine Club package.
Geographical Indication: Okanagan Valley, BC (Oliver)
Cases Produced: 289
Appearance: Bright, clear, pale gold in colour.
Nose: Medium intensity, with fresh pear, red apple, honeycomb, floral and lemon aromas.
Palate: A light-plus bodiedand vibrant Riesling, bringing ripe pear and lemon flavours as well as peach, red apple and honeyed notes on the palate with just a hint of sweetness and very subtle herbal notes. Partial malolactic fermentation imparts an impressive, almost-creamy texture.
Quality: Drinking superbly right now, but this would mature beautifully over the next three years at minimum.
Food Pairing: Any variety of Japanese fare — from edamame to agedashi tofu to most nigiri or rolls — would work with this Riesling. But it’s versatile enough that mild cheeses, vinaigrette salads and fresh fruit.
Wine Writer’s Comment: Okanagan Riesling tends to be dry, lean and racy — not a bad thing at all. And while the TH Wines Riesling fits that bill, it also brings a tremendous expression of fresh fruit that’s rare to find in this style of wine from the Okanagan.
While much of the focus on white wines in the Okanagan Valley tends to be on Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling like this one could certainly help to raise the profile of the grape’s potential in the valley.
This Riesling went through wild fermentation, in neutral oak barrels, for 10 months. Production is small — just 11 barrels worth of fruit — and the evidence is in the bottle that plenty of care has gone into every step of the winemaking process.
