Free Form Riesling 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis organic riesling comes from Garnet Valley Ranch, the exciting higher altitude vineyard planted by OCP, and under the guidance of Pedro Parra and Alberto Antonini, and under the care of viticulturist extraordinaire Duncan Billing. This was native fermented in clay amphora, and then aged in stainless prior to bottling. Off-dry, with 17g/L RS, this still feels quite tight with earthy, yeasty lees, green apple, river stone, and a long, lingering, humming, grippy finish. Partner with complexed and fragrant Thai or Vietnamese seafood or veg dishes; this can handle it.Tasted: 29 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 34.90 winery online/direct Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
