Tantalus Old Vines Riesling Natural Brut 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their 1978 block of riesling vines, this traditional method brut sells out every year, prized for its originality and rarity as much for its vibrant, mouth-watering acidity and drive. Bright and juicy, with lively and pure lime, white grapefruit and green apple and racy, textured and pithy acidity. A potent stony riesling base buttresses the whole, while piercing limey acidity carries though the very lengthy finish. Well done.Tasted: 09 June 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 34.31 winery online/direct Producer: Tantalus VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
