Sperling Vineyards 2013 Old Vines Riesling (East Kelowna) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Production: 210 cases
Date Tasted: July 23rd, 2017
Tasting Notes: Opens with a complex nose offering citrus and pear fruit mingling with mineral and perfume aromas and with a burgeoning susurrus of petrol notes. The fruit'n'mineral palate follows, and is the star attraction with an excellent balance between its off-dry sweetness and tangy citrus acidity.
At 4 years of age, this golden-straw hued Riesling, sourced from nearly 40 year old vines, is already showing signs of development with hints of more to come making this a wine a great option for the cellar. Drink 2019-2023.
