Fort Berens Reserve Riesling 2017

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaThis brand new Reserve Riesling is sourced entirely from Fort Berens' estate vineyard in Lillooet. After whole cluster pressing, this was cool fermented for seven weeks in stainless before nine months' bottle age prior to release. Juicy, potent pear flesh, mandarin, lime, on a full, fleshy palate, one shaped by limey sherbet to a snappy finish. Off dry and frisky but with perfect balance and a modicum of complexity. Well done; a lovely solo sipper.Tasted: 17 October 2018Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 22.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
