Little Farm Winery Riesling 2015

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their family's four-acre organic farm in Cawston, this was planted mostly in 2009, and with 6 different clones. Whole cluster pressed (by foot-treading whole bunches in bins) directly to a mix of old, neutral barrels and a stainless-steel tank before allowing for a long, slow ferment and ten months on the gross lees. Minimal sulphur was added just before bottling. Bone dry, with lime pith, potent key lime leaf, white grapefruit essence, green apple, river stones humming throughout to a fine, chalky finish. Streamlined linearity and drive, drinking beautifully now but will honey and deepen with cellaring. 2.93 pH, 8.7 TA, 12.2 percent alcohol. Only 170 cases made.Tasted: 04 April 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
