Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A medium bodied Okanagan riesling from Summerhill, vinified biodynamically, with natural outdoor fermentation and ambient farm yeasts. Approachable, orchard fruit notes, medium acidity. Pairs well with Thai green curry. Tasted 2017 vintage in Sept 2018. 91 points
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The residual sugar on this wine is not cloying. There is nice balance to it, with notes of lemon, fresh cut Cortland apple, stone fruit, and orange blossom. 90 Points.
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a more traditional Riesling, seeing as it is on the sweeter side. Aromas of fruit tree blossoms and ripe peaches are followed by flavours of stone fruit and honey. A bit of an acidic finish rounds out this yummy wine. It would be great paired with spicy Korean chicken wings. Tasted September 16, 2018.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely and refreshing! Aromas of pear, peach, honeysuckle and a hint of cinnamon. Medium bodied on the palate, with medium acidity. Ripe fruit on the palate with a lengthy finish. Enjoy with slightly spicy dishes or even a light dessert of you're not necessarily a dessert wine fan.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Off-dry BC Riesling from Okanagan Valley with notes of green apple, peach, lanolin and lime zest. Enjoy with mild curries.
Tasted Sept. 2018
Pam Hatton rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Rose, perfumed with a bit of acetone that blows off. Slightly off dry, med body, balanced acidity with a medium long finish.
