Our Riesling is grown in the Ritchie Vineyard, located on Okanagan Lake just north of Kelowna. The climate here is cool in grape-growing terms and the 2018 vintage is a perfect example of this. The summer heat waned in early August and gave way to a long, cool but mostly sunny fall. The grapes were harvested in mid-October with plenty of natural acidity to produce a mineral-driven, nearly dry style of Riesling.
Floral, green apple, lemon rind with a stony minerality. On the palate it presents itself with a prominent streak of fresh acidity that is the hallmark of the Riesling grape. The residual sugar is barely perceptible, yet it softens the acidity just enough to lift the fruit and let the flavours shine.
