Mayhem Riesling 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Summerland's Campagnaro Vineyard, this was whole cluster pressed and partially native fermented in a mix of puncheons and steel. Fermentation was stopped when the desired sweetness (final, near 10 g/L) was reached. It remained on lees for 6 months prior to bottling. Juicy and bright with grapefruit, sweet lime, and orchard pear, this skips along the palate to a citrus pith finish. The sugar is offset by the shining acidity. Fun, smart, and ready to crack this year, as intended.Tasted: 13 June 2020Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 18.26 winery direct, private retail Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
