Kitsch Esther's Block Riesling 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaKitsch released a pair of single block rieslings in 2017. Esther's Block Riesling was planted to the clay/limestone soils of the home site, and is all clone 239. After a gentle whole-bunch press, it was fermented in stainless, and then rested 90 days on the lees. The result is a tightly strung white with limey, green apple fruit flecked with apricots, a touch of honey, a hint of diesel and a whiff of nutty lees. It’s dry enough to pair well with seafood but can take on a curry as well. Very promising.Tasted: 23 December 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Kitsch WinesDistributors: Winery Direct
