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 2017 vintage was typical in that it was actually cool and brought to an end a string of hotter vintages. This meant a delayed harvest and a long, slow ripening period that retained the acidity and developed great aromatics. This is our fourth vintage of Riesling and although it’s an outlier compared to the last three, we feel it exemplifies the terroir of the region.
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.
