Availability: Direct from winery here, VQA stores and BCLDB stores
Production: 1145 cases
Date Tasted: April 22nd, 2015
Tasting Notes: This single-vineyard Riesling is one to sip slowly, despite the urge you may have to take a big gulp of the finely balanced, off-dry fruit cup, cool stonefruit and zesty citrus characters. It evolves in the glass to reveal gentle, aromatic aromas of flowers and sweet orchard fruit as it warms up to room temperature. The palate sparkles with effervescent, green-apple acidity and steely minerality. The finish is long and mouth watering.
Enjoy this wine in its youth or, if you are proficient at delaying gratification, experiment with putting 1 or 2 bottles away for a few years and test for aged Riesling characters like honey nectar flavours or petroleum aromas. Drink now-2019+? - Liam Carrier ©copyright 2015 IconWines.ca
