A viscous, luscious medium sweet BC Riesling with aromas of lime blossom, honeysuckle and pear. Medium-bodied and layered. Perfect for glazed ham and chutney.

Lovely Riesling from BC. Slightly off-dry with loads of citrus and honey notes. Full
mouth feel. Vibrant acidity. Great value and what a beautiful label! Pair with crab and dill spread on a baguette. Tasted: July 2017.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
I really enjoyed this Riesling from Rust Wine Co. from their South Cawston Lazy River Vineyard in BC. Just barely off-dry with 5.2 g/l of residual sugar. Aromas of petrol, apple, pear and honey. Crisp acidity with flavours of peach and citrus. Pair with spicy asian cuisine or grilled pork tenderloin.
Jim Faulkner is the winemaker for both Rush and Mount Boucherie, another fabulous BC winery in West Kelowna. I'm not sure if he's also responsible for the labeling but kuddos to the person/team that is. The front sports colourful pictures of various kinds of rust while the back label clearly gives all kinds of interesting information on the wine itself.

Lovely! Aromatic, with lots of peach, pear, and petrol on the nose. Dry, with medium to high acidity. Lots of petrol and mineral notes on the palate, with some zesty lemon and pithy grapefruit as well. Enjoy with seafood. Love the informative label which describes the clone planted (239 - ungrafted, from 1995) and the soil composition (sandy, clay loam, limestone and granite rock). Really cool labels too! Enjoy!
