JoieFarm 2009 Riesling - 89 pts
Availability: Direct from winery. Private wine shops like Marquis Cellars.
Cost: $23 (winery website), $27 (Marquis).
Date Tasted: April 17th, 2010
Tasting Notes: This an Okanagan Riesling that will remind you, pleasantly, of the mineral and citrus, off-dry Riesling of Mosel, Germany. The subtle nose displays aromas of lemon, gooseberry, smooth slate and kumquat with dried-ginger spice. The off-dry palate offers a full, oily texture with flavours of tangerine, lemon/lime, green apple and pineapple. Crisp acidity balances the concentrated sweet fruit flavours and helps create a bright, refreshing wine with a long, satisfying finish.
