CedarCreek Platinum Block 3 Riesling 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBlock wines are a singular affair, which best explains this selection made with twenty-three-year old vines that are double harvested; first off are the top clusters, followed later by the lower bunches after gathering a bit more maturity. The style is super bright and direct. The nose is Kelowna floral with a whack of tasty lime juice flecked with apples, pears, ginger and more lime pith. It’s young and gangly still but shows all the potential to gather itself over the next three to five years. Try this now with a pesto pasta dish.Tasted: 20 September 2016Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 22.99 winery direct Producer: CedarCreek Estate WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
