Synchromesh Riesling Storm Haven Vineyard 2015

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the premium riesling from the Okanagan's riesling specialist, soured from a single course sand over gravel vineyard on their estate in Okanagan Falls. This is the first year to include their new 2010 plantings, up to 1/3 of the blend. Beauty concentration, with lemon balm, ripe apricot and chalky texture cut with grippy green apple and lingering with white, gingered honey and lime pith. Mouthwatering shimmering acidity throughout this youthful wine, with the vast majority of its life still ahead. Indeed, this feels like a gangly teenager, on the verge of the swan stage. I will hold this vintage for 5+ years. Even in the super warm 2015 vintage, this holds at 8.9 percent alcohol, with a striking balance between 46 g/l RS and 11 g/l TA.Tasted: 04 August 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Synchromesh Wines Inc.Distributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
