This Riesling is grown in the Ritchie Vineyard, located just south of Okanagan Centre. The climate here is generally cool in grape growing terms, yet the 2015 vintage was an exceptionally warm one that had us harvesting much earlier in the fall to preserve the natural acidity in the grapes.
Tasting Notes Floral, apricot, pineapple and lemon aromas. On the palate it presents itself as a dry wine, 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.
