Natalie's Score: 92/100

Incredibly juicy and mouth-watering -- just bursts with personality! Lime, grapefruit and lemon on the nose and palate. Perfectly balanced acidity. Works as an aperitif, but I'd want it with seafood.

Riesling food pairings: sweet and sour pork, seared tuna, planked salmon.

Reviews and Ratings

Each year, there are single blocks of vineyard that show us something unique - small spots where vine maturity, soil and climate combine to create something distinctly CedarCreek. In 2012, we harvested these 21-year-old vines much earlier then we have in the past. The flavours were fresh, citrus-y, even a little lime-y. Perfect. And with sugar-levels still so low, we were presented with the opportunity for a low-alcohol Riesling. We fermented cold and slow to protect and nurture its beautiful purity and the result is our elegant Mosel-by-way-of-the-Okanagan Block 3 Riesling. You can taste the unique character of Block 3 in every glass. On that, you have our word.

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.
