Sperling Vineyards Old Vines Riesling

Sperling Vineyards Old Vines Riesling 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAnn Sperling farms the Kelowna land her grandparents settled more than 150 years ago, and she does it biodynamically, with decades of winemaking experience and inherent knowledge of the land. The Old Vines Riesling is the winery flagship, held back two years prior to release. Potent and delicate at once, with tight minerality driving pear, lime, green apple, quince, white honey, along a juicy, streamline palate. There's a slick of RS tipping this into off-dry, but enough nervy, zippy acidity to keep it all taut. Drinking beautifully now, but will continue to hold and impress with cellaring. Definitely among Canada's top rieslings.Tasted: 09 May 2018Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 27.89 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Sperling VineyardsDistributors: Revelry Import Company
