Synchromesh Wines Thorny Vines Riesling 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Thorny Vines vineyard, at the very southern end of the Naramata Bench, the site faces north and was planted to 21B in 2010 on fertile heavy clay. Botrytis is notable in the savoury earthiness underpinning this greyhound of a wine, streaking along with juicy wild pear, lime pulp, wildflower honey, and crunchy honey crisp apple. Acid is crazy high (TA 12.08) as is RS (66 g/l), as is not alcohol (8.23 degrees). There is a density here from the impact of the aforementioned, but it remains light and nimble on the medium bodied palate. Stunner now, and will continue to impress with time.
