: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $20
Alcohol: 11.5%
Production: 380 cases
Date Tasted: April 1st, 2014

Tasting Notes: This is a single vineyard Riesling sourced from the Osoyoos area which focuses on the juxtaposition of its sweet and acidic characters by way of contrasting ripe orchard and 
tart citrus fruit flavours and aromas. 

The nose boasts lively apricot, white peach, lime peel and orange blossom notes while the off-dry palate preens with honeyed citrus fruit flavours off-set by mouth-watering green apple acidity through to a moderate finish.

This is a BC Riesling with a great shot at ageing gracefully thanks to Botrytis affected fruit at harvest time. Look for nectarine-like aromas and flavours to appear over time, though, if you can't wait, its drinking beautifully now. Drink now-2018+.
