Winemaking

Hand harvested, 50% whole bunch pressed, 50% 24-hour skin contact. Settled juice is fermented long and cold in stainless steel tanks. Chilled to stop with genuine fruit sweetness.

Tasting Notes

Aromatics of refreshing spearmint, subtle hint of manuka honey, and citrus blossom, mirrored flavours on the palate finishing with flint and slate mineral. This wine has energy, tension, and a crisp, lingering finish. Enjoy fresh now or cellar 10 to 20 years.

Reviews

91 points - This is another razor riesling from Spearhead's vineyards in East Kelowna and Mount Boucherie on the other side of the lake. Scintillating acidity is barely cushioned by a hint of sweetness. Small batch winemaking and skin contact create some complexity as well, with youthful green apple, nectarine, vague florals and flint on the nose and finish. It is mid-weight, energetic and bright, with excellent length.    ~ David Lawrason

 89 points - Winemaker Grant Stanley gets riesling, and his work here is essential, keeping the knife-edge acidity and freshness front and center. The fruit is a mix from Seven Mountain Vineyard on Mount Boucherie in West Kelowna, and Gentleman Farmer Vineyard in southeast Kelowna. The fresh, 12 percent, green apple, lime is balanced with a dusting of sweetness at 9 grams, pulling you into the yin and yang of this wine. It finishes with a stony, mineral undercurrent. Mouthwatering now, and will be for several years under screwcap.     ~ Anthony Gismondi
