CedarCreek Riesling

CedarCreek Riesling 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaI love simplicity. At 20.6 grams of residual sugar, you might expect a sweet barrage of fruit, yet it’s anything but. Expect a bright, vibrant, citrus bomb with peach and apricot, with a similarly weighted level of acidity. The result is a friendly, softer style of riesling that is gulpable. Almost all the fruit is clone 21B off Block 1, planted in 2013 at the winery, although nearly a quarter of the site is now over a 25 years old. It's tasty stuff at a terrific price. Eight percent of the wine is fermented in French oak and stainless steel; 94 percent is fermented in stainless steel. After that, it all spends three months on its lees in stainless steel.Tasted: 16 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 18.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: CedarCreek Estate WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
