Natalie's Score: 92/100
A vibrant and richly flavours BC Riesling that jumps out of the glass. Aromas of lime, grapefruit and chives. A lovely and racy core of minerality. Pair with fried chicken.
Riesling food pairings: roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, shrimp tempura, grilled salmon.
Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Tropic fruit aroma of pineapple, mango and creamy banana. Slight hint of vanilla. Sharp on the palate, lingering with a buzz of pink grapefruit and pink peppercorn. Lively yet elegant!
Pair with Cajun shrimp taco with guacamole and cilantro salsa
|Carola Price rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Clean and bright with some typical petrol and rose on the nose. Mouthfeel is gorgeous. Filled with minerality, some petrol notes, lime. Tart and yet juicy. Lots of acidity. Pucker up buttercup!
Best now to 2 years for the fruit forward lover and 5 years for more complex nutty flavours.
Nicely done showing the Okanagan can make some stellar Rieslings.
Pair with absolutely nothing... or anything. This is a really great example of a versatile wine.
|Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Mineral, apricot, toasted almonds, and citrus notes on the nose but the flavours are all about citrus, especially lime. A refreshing efferescent Riesling that would complement a range of dishes, from tempura, and sushi, to fish and chips.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Crisp mineral notes followed by peach and citrus. Vibrant acidity. This wine would pair well with spicy seafood. Tasted April 3, 2016.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Peach and mineral nose with hint of citrus, more peach and lemon come through on palate. Extra dry with lemon/peach finish.
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
I confess it's a bit of a cliché to write that,but the nose is a textbook definition of riesling.Vibrant acidity and distinct fruity flavours makes it very enjoyable by itself as an aperitif,but i would love it with some lemon glazed chicken,for instance. The acidity and pronounced minerality,while typical,might surprise the people used to the sweeter wines.
|Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Clear yellow color with notes of lime, flint, honey and white flower.
This wine is nerve, Medium-bodied and very long.
That's an excellent choice to match Sushi.
Serve it at 8-10 degrees.
Ready to drink but can be aged 2-3 years.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:|
A light Riesling…
Presentation: Understated, clean
Appearance: Very light yellow
Nose: Petrol, peaches, hay
Taste: Sour peaches
Finish: Sour peaches and a little caramel/toastiness in the back
Overall impression: An easy Riesling but not complex
|The 2014 vintage of this terrific BC white wine from Culima's Decora label is made from the classic Riesling grape. White floral notes and lemongrass. Great aperitif or companion to fresh seafood. - Community Wine Reviews|
