Intrigue Wines 2011 Riesling - 87pts

Intrigue Wines 2011 Riesling (Lake Country) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here and BC VQA stores
Cost: $16.90
Alcohol: 12.1%
Production: 420 cases
Date Tasted: August 8th, 2012

Tasting Notes: A pleasant nose of lime rind, pear and light mineral aromas sitting comfortably in the glass followed by more prominent citrus and orchard fruit flavours on the vibrant palate. Produced in an off-dry style with 14g/l of residual sugar balanced beautifully by tangy, green apple acidity leaving a crisp and focused wine. Not challenging or overly complex, but well-made and true to the variety - all for just under $17! Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink 2012-2014.
