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.

Silver - 2019 National Wine Awards of Canada
“Consistent, expressive, supremely delicious, Arrowleaf has done it again. Charming white floral fragrance, easy breezy peach and apple flavours with a zap of fruity acidity marking the lingering dry finish. Pure, clean, crisp and smashable. I highly approve of the new label too. Tasted blind at NWAC June 2018.” - Review by DJ Kearney, WineAlign
