SpierHead Winery 2012 Riesling - 89+pts

SpierHead Winery 2012 Riesling (East Kelowna) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from winery here and select VQA stores
Cost: $22
Alcohol: 11.4%
Production: 350 cases
Date Tasted: May 18th, 2013

Tasting Notes: Flinty with lemon-lime citrus notes aplenty, this well-balanced wine hails from East Kelowna yet adheres to the Niagara Riesling formula of matching sweetness to acid while keeping the alcohol low and maintaining a light and mineral-y texture. No clunky sugar and alcohol influenced palate here. Just clean, crisp fruit and terroir-driven flavours: a refreshingly honest approach. Should develop unctuous nectarine flavours if given time to mature, though tasting great in its youthful state today. Drink 2013-2017.
