Cost: $18
Alcohol: 13.4%
Production: 532 cases
Date Tasted: May 21st, 2013

Tasting Notes: At first quaff you know you're in for something unique and something special. This Lillooet produced Riesling offers a range of aromas on the intriguing nose from grapefruit and kiwi fruit to orange blossoms and stonefruit minerality. The delightfully tangy palate starts with sweet, juicy apples and nectarine flavours before quickly resolving into a crisp explosion of mouth-watering, yet balanced, citrus acidity. As with the 2011, lingering spice adds to the uniqueness and mystique of this tasty Riesling from a little-known terroir. Drink 2013-2016+.
