SpearHead Orchard Block Riesling (planted 2016) in South East Kelowna

Winemaking

Hand harvested on November 15th. Foot stomped in picking bins for skin contact and to free the sugar from the dehydrated raisins. Fermented cold in stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Bright light gold colour. Well packed aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruit with layers of apricot marmalade and honey nectar. The palate mirrors the nose with a smooth rich and unctuous mouthfeel. A fine line of acidity provides tension and energy. Drink now or cellar for 8 to 10 years.

Reviews

  A delicate late harvest wine, not overly sweet, with lime most prominent on the nose and palate, followed by other citrus and green fruits.
