Tasting Notes: One of the most consistently yummy and refreshing Riesling in the Okanagan, SpierHead's 2016 edition is refined and concise with a vibrant nose of citrus and orchard fruits, steely, mineral aromas and light, signature notes of raw honey and lime peel.

A crisp palate follows with a touch of residual sugar up-front and layers of apple, melon, mineral and citrus flavours mid-palate and through to the long, mouth-watering, long finish where hints of spice and lime peel linger. Drink now-2021+.
