100% Riesling, 100% Estate Vineyard Okanagan Falls with very light, sandy soil.
The vineyard planted in 1985 produces year after year outstanding, clean, and 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 be produced
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.
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.
Pairs super well with spicy, intensely flavoured foods. Try it with Thai, Curry Dishes, Butter Chicken, Blue Cheese or just a book.

We just love this Riesling and now sorry for not buying more. It has such a lively, refreshing taste, almost feels like drinking a fine Prosecco but this Riesling has more body. Thank you Stefanie for being such a good hostess when we were there tasting. Danke für die wunderbare Weinprobe.
