Tantalus Riesling 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaVibrant and singing as ever, the 2018 feels especially joyous. Estate fruit was picked as lots and whole cluster pressed separately, each fermented and aged in stainless to preserve the fresh, pure fruit. They were then blended to achieve this winning, youthful white. Lime rules the juicy, off-dry palate, with pulp and peel playing staring roles, and accompanied by green apple, pear, kiwi, and mouthwatering sherbet-laced acidity which holds the 19 g/L RS at bay. This is one of three rieslings released by Tantalus this year, and they all carry distinctly the house hallmark.Tasted: 05 July 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.91 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Tantalus VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
