This aromatic Riesling showcases notes of fresh green apples, grapefruit, and elderflowers. It is beautifully balanced and slightly off-dry. Pair this crisp and refreshing wine with a wide array of dishes from Indian and Thai cuisine to beef or pork tacos.
The majority of Riesling grapes were estate grown, with the balance from Naramata. The grapes were destemmed and crushed, then left on the skins for 12 hours before pressing. The juice was fermented cold to retain the natural fruit-forward aromas. The residual sugar was monitored regularly to determine when to stop the fermentation for optimal balance between sweetness and acidity. A 4-month maturation on the lees gave this terroir-driven Riesling additional mouthfeel.
