Tantalus Riesling 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThere is nothing regular about the “regular” Tantalus riesling, and judging by the rush to southeast Kelowna to grow riesling, pinot noir, and chardonnay, the terroir is equally compelling. The purity of fruit is the Tantalus signature, and you get that and more in this 2018, a vintage that started slow, and slowed down under a haze of summer smoke before harvest. The wine is bright, clean and refreshing with signature aromas of tangerines, lime leaf, and flowers that spill across its stony, mineral palate, flecked with kiwi and starfruit. Just a baby, you can drink it now or hold it a decade.Tasted: 02 May 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.91 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Tantalus VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
