SpierHead Winery 2010 Riesling (Kelowna) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $21.90
Alcohol: 12.2%
Production: 101 cases
Date Tasted: June 17th, 2011

Tasting Notes: Produced from fruit grown in the home vineyard of the East Kelowna-based winery, the SpierHead 2010 Riesling offers a rich nose of baked apples with supporting slate mineral notes followed by a bright, focused, citrus and mineral-flavoured dry palate. A touch of spice lingers on the well-balanced, long finish. Shows good promise for the varietal at this property. Enjoy this release in its youth, over the next 1-2 years. Drink 2011-2013.
