The palate bursts with lime and green apple flavours that bring a young freshness and racy acidity. These mingle beautifully with rounder warm stone fruit notes, giving it a lifted character and a wet stone finish. Ceviche, crab cakes topped with apple and fennel slaw, salmon sashimi, chicken picatta or summer salads with citrus vinaigrette are some of our favourite pairings.

Light-bodied with a poised complexity. Alluring aromas of spring blossoms and jasmine greet you on the nose, followed by the freshness of green apples and a lively lingering acidity.

WINEMAKING

With the Okanagan’s steady warm summer, our Riesling was selectively harvested with a combination of early and late pickings from our East and West Kelowna vineyards. The young fruit helped bring acidity and freshness, whilst the grapes from the second pick created a rounder peach and tangerine to its profile.   

The wine was whole cluster pressed and racked and then underwent a long, cool, controlled ferment for over 4 weeks. This slow ferment and the use of stainless steel tanks have enhanced the aromatics and vibrant fruit flavours in the finished wine.

  Alc. by volume:   12.0%

 Team leader Hamish Anderson admired the ‘restrained, cool nose of lime cordial and flowers’ in this Gold-Listed Canadian Riesling, adding: ‘It has really good lime acidity that cuts through a textured palate, plus this one will develop.’ ‘There’s a great delivery of fleshy yet zippy fruit that leads to a freshness throughout,’ said Christopher Delalonde MS of The Dorchester, adding: ‘The taut yet limpid palate leads to a long, lemony finish’. ‘There’s an elegant petrol note, too, and I think this would make a great aperitif,’ said Tobias Gorn of Boisdale Restaurants.
