Riesling 2017

VINEYARD:

Riesling: Estate Vineyard Okanagan Falls with very light, sandy soil. The vineyard is now 31 years old and produces year after year outstanding, clean, aromatic fruit. The quantity is low but the excellent quality makes up for that. After all we must grow the flavours in the field, as only from there, a great wine can happen.

WINEMAKING:          

We choose the picking date by the acidity level and not by the brix level of the grapes. This is very important to create a lively & well balanced Riesling. Ferments only in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks so we can stop the fermentation when needed. And that’s all the intervention we do as the wine making style is pretty much “less is more”. Bottled a few month later, all under screw cap to preserve freshness the longest. 

TASTING NOTES:      

If there is a cliché about Rieslings being too sweet, taste this! This wine will make you re-think Riesling. Yes it has the sweetness but instead of being sticky, your nose gets greeted by intense exotic fruit aromas like passion fruit, mango & juicy pineapple. Ripe pear, apricot & peach with an incredible balanced acidity rounds it up to a textbook Riesling example.

FOOD PAIRING:        

Pairs super well with spicy, intensely flavoured foods. Try it with Thai, Curry Dishes, Butter Chicken, Blue Cheese or just a book.
