St. Hubertus Estate Winery 2009 Dry Riesling - 88pts

St. Hubertus Estate Winery 2009 Dry Riesling (Kelowna) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $15.50
Alcohol: 12.2%
Date Tasted: June 11th, 2011

Tasting Notes: The rich, tropical and tangerine nose of this well-priced Riesling from Kelowna also offers delicate perfume and lime zest notes which seem to hover in the glass. The dry palate follows with intense flavours of granny smith apples, pineapple, kiwi and citrus fruit. Mouth watering acidity balances the juicy texture and helps the wine finish crisp and lean. One will be hard pressed to find better value in a BC Riesling. Screw-top enclosure has locked in the freshness. Drink 2011-2013.
