Little Farm Winery Pied de Cuve Riesling 2016

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPied de Cuve is Little Farm's natural series, native fermented (with the foot-trod pied de cuve vineyard starter) and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The 2016 is a blend of 6 clones, all estate planted at the winery's organic Mulberry Tree Vineyard in Cawston. Whole cluster pressed to neutral barrels, this underwent a slow native ferment, spending seven months on the lees before racking. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulphur. Tight and taut, with electric energy pulsing the linear palate along a mineral core. Savoury, stony and salty, this draws key lime, meadow grass and dried herb along to the lingering finish.
