Production Notes
100% Riesling
Winemaker Notes
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.
Food Pairing Notes
This versatile and food-friendly Riesling pairs well with an array of dishes such as Indian or Thai curry, and beef or pork tacos. For something a little different, try it paired with fried tofu and a mild chili sauce.
