A lift white wine made from BC Riesling grapes. This tastes dry even though it's not quite due to the lovely balancing acidity. Refreshing and crisp. Perfect for Dover sole.

Reviews and Ratings

This wine was made from 100% Riesling grapes harvested from our Naramata and Osoyoos vineyards. The fruit was hand picked and immediately hand sorted and pressed with 2 hours of skin contact to bring out the mouthfeel and aromatics. The resulting juice was fermented cold to preserve the bright fruit flavours.
The various tanks were inoculated with VL1 yeast culture specially selected to build complexity and extract robust Riesling characteristics.

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.

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.
