Orofino Home Vineyard Wild Ferment Old Vines Riesling 2018

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom 29 year old Home Vineyard vines, this 21B riesling is rooted in sandy loam over gravels. After destemming and a long native ferment in old French barrels, the wine rested for a short time in wood, with occasional batonnage. Plump apricot and lime opens this off-dry, gentle white, bedded with river stones and sculpted with a pithy lime acidity, that really sneaks up and steals the mouth-watering finish. There's a lovely balance to this savoury, interesting, accessible wine, drinking well now but with years ahead in bottle. 96 cases produced.Tasted: 26 May 2020Tasted by: Prices:
