Before you even take a sip, savour the aromas of tart apple and lime notes in this Riesling. Its balance of acidity, mineralty and zesty fruit make it crisp and refreshing. Notes of fresh tropical fruits will dance on your tongue in this full-bodied Riesling.

Grapes were whole cluster pressed and cold settled then fermented using various commercial yeasts to diversify the aromatic complexity. A slow and cold ferment ensured the retention of these aromas. Fermentation was halted to retain a residual sugar of 6.7g/l to balance taste.

This is an age-worthy wine. You can enjoy it now or it can be cellared for up to six years.

Tasting Notes
The 2016 Riesling is perfectly balanced with bright fruit aromas of crisp apples, lime and tropical fruits and a delicate hint of sweetness. On the palate, it is rich with a beautiful, zesty finish. Pair it with spicy dishes or seafood, including lobster and prawns.

Winemaker Notes
Estate grown grapes were blended with a small portion of Vernon and Similkameen grapes for our 2016 Riesling. Grapes were whole cluster pressed and cold settled then fermented using various commercial yeasts to diversify the aromatic complexity. A slow and cold ferment ensured the retention of these aromas. Fermentation was halted to retain a residual sugar of 6.7g/l to balance taste.
