Synchromesh Riesling Storm Haven Vineyard 2016

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSynchromesh, and founder / winemaker / powered by riesling inspirer Alan Dickinson, has earned the title as THE riesling producer in Canada, on par with the best anywhere. Storm Haven is their home estate vineyard in Okanagan Falls, a stunning biodiverse site perched on outflow from a mountain pass, and nestled at the base of Peachcliff Mountain. It's easily one of the top sites planted in BC. This wine is always a highlight, and the 2016 is singing. Juicy and nimble, this is a driving, energetic wine, humming with broken savoury salts. This is not about the fruit. Bacon fat, pear skin, mineral salts skip along the palate with vibrant, but laser like focus and drive. Tasting incredible now in youth; can't wait to see how this develops with time in the bottle. 9.2 degrees, pH 2.81, TA 11.063, RS 38.03.Tasted: 15 October 2018Tasted by: Prices:
