Monte Creek Ranch 2015 Riesling - 87pts

Monte Creek Ranch 2015 Riesling (Kamloops) BC

: Direct from winery here
Cost: $16.99 (including taxes)
Alcohol: 12.5%
Date Tasted: September 14th, 2016

Tasting Notes: More aromatic and expressive on the nose than last year's release, the 2014 Riesling offers a nice blend of orange blossom, raw honey, peach, lemon and mineral aromas followed by a crisp, dry, grapefruit and peach driven palate with plenty of citrus acidity and cool mineral flavours.

Though line rind notes linger in the mouth the fruit characters fade quickly on the finish. Pair with hard cheeses to fill the gap. Drink now-2017.
