The majority of Riesling grapes were estate grown, with the balance from Naramata. The grapes were destemmed and crushed, then left on the skins for 12 hours before pressing. The juice was fermented cold to retain the natural fruit-forward aromas. The residual sugar was monitored regularly to determine when to stop the fermentation for optimal balance between sweetness and acidity. A 4-month maturation on the lees gave this terroir-driven Riesling additional mouthfeel.

93 | Dry grass and dried flowers, mandarin. A juicy middle, flowery fruit, nice.

96 | A mix of high toned florals and citrus. The palate is tight, intense and long. Perfectly integrated sugar and acid.

94 | Juts starting to show a little hint of tertiary. wet stone, nectarine, honey. Plenty of flavour, sweetness sits well. A slightly broader, riper style.

87 | lean, simple, leaves me wanting more complexity and depth, flat finish
