Blend
100% Block 3 Riesling

We've adopted a "two-pick" approach to our Riesling in Block 3.  The second pick gets a few weeks of additional hang time to develop in the vineyard and is then harvested for our Platinum Riesling.  Until 2016.  This time the first pick - normally destined for our Estate tier - felt stylistically more like Platinum fruit with is bright, fresh flavours & vibrant acidity.  We wild fermented 10% of it in French oak to provide a little extra texture and mouth feel to compliment the lifted, floral complexity on the nose.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"A vibrant, zesty, lime fresh BC white wine made from the classic Riesling grape. Lemongrass and citrus on the nose and palate. Refreshing, yet densely packed with flavour and perfectly balanced and medium-bodied." - Jon Steeves
