A gorgeous, steely vibrant BC Riesling with aromas of lime citrus and lemon. Racy acidity for seafood. So refreshing. Pair with seafood.

Reviews and Ratings
|Brent Gushowaty rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
In the glass, pale and tinged with green. The nose shows lemon, petrol, honey and bruléed melon. On the palate the wine is dry and shows melon peel, green plum and lemon sherbet with body and intensity just shy of medium. Very well balanced, it retains its mid-palate intensity well through the long finish. This is distinct, splendid new world Riesling, that touches back to some typical Riesling characteristics but also contributes new elements that carry the mark of the place it was grown and made.
Tasted previously in 2015 (below), it has aged superbly and could go another five years easily. Great stuff.
91 points again!
Tasted August 7,2018
Previous Tasting 2015
Eye: Pale lemon
Nose: Mineral, lemon, apple, citrus.
Palate: Extremely fresh clean flavours of tart apples, citrus, cantelope peel, hint of just ripe nectarines/lychee but light texture. Quite long and perfectly balanced, Intriguing finish of bruléed melon may portend future development. Cellar 5-10 years, try one in 3!
Date Tasted: March 17, 2015
Availability: Winery and select private stores.

Gorgeous, fresh, and vibrant! Aromas of lemon-lime, sweet melon and wet gravel. Light, racy and full of bright citrus notes on the palate, this wine is dry but a hint of a honey note carries through on the finish, along with a lot of stony mineral notes. Very enjoyable! Enjoy with fresh BC oysters.
