Quails Gate Dry Riesling Okanagan 2018

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.  

Quails Gate Dry Riesling Okanagan 2018

Canada - Okanagan Valley
100% Riesling
75 cl
12.5% ABV

This dry, vibrant and zesty Riesling has intense aromas of lime, white flowers, stone fruit and wet stones. The well balanced palate combines intense citrus flavours with a hint of spice, leading to a long and refreshing finish.

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. 

TASTING & PAIRING The palate bursts with lime and green apple flavours that bring a young freshness and racy 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.
