A lovely, off-dry BC Riesling made from vines planted in east Kelowna in the winery's single vineyard of Maria's Block. Glorious notes of ripe peach and sun-dappled apricot. Pair with seafood, shellfish and roast chicken.

Riesling food pairings: south pacific inspired cuisine, tandoori, papaya salad with chilies and peanuts.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

For comparison's sake, a little sweeter than Esther's block Riesling, but honestly, just as delicious. Aromas of white peach, white grapefruit and lemon pith with the tiniest hint of wet stone. This wine has that great balance of delicate aromas, bright flavours and just enough acidity to bring some harmony. Nothing feels out of place or lime it's too much. Enjoy with seafood pasta, summer patio afternoons and good times.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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