A juicy BC Riesling bursting with flavour: aromas of peach, lime blossom and apricot. Mouth-watering with racy acidity for seafood. Medium-bodied and absolutely delicious.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Vibrant and flavourful! This is a lovely and fragrant Riesling from the Okanagan, near Kelowna. Aromas of lime, peach, pear, and slightly floral on the nose. Medium bodied, nicely balanced acidity, and a bit of a mineral note on the palate, but all balanced with nice citrus notes. So refreshing, and just perfect for summer. Enjoy this with seafood, summer salads, and patio season.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
