Martin's Lane Simes Vineyard Riesling 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSimes Vineyard is a steep, north-facing site in East Kelowna, based on granite soils. It is the first riesling release from the site, all clone 49, native fermented and with nine months on the lees. Unlike the savoury and textural Fritzi's Riesling, this is all about buzzy, tight fruit: cool perfumed pear, lime pith, green apple, lemon verbena and a nimble aromatic lift. Lovely now in youth.Tasted: 18 October 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 55.00 winery direct Producer: Martin's Lane WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
