Sperling Vineyards Dry Riesling 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a new limited release from Ann Sperling, caretaker of her family's land settled in Kelowna more than 150 years ago. She thought the 2018 vintage was so special that she was inspired to create this new cuvée, bottled under the Vision Series. Organic and biodynamic, from old vines planted in 1978, this had some skin contact prior to ferment, giving it a taut, textural buzz. Lime pith, mandarin, pear skin hums along the sleek, lean palate, alive with energy through the lengthy finish. Quite savoury, and certainly dry, this is a wine to seek out if you're a fan of the style.Tasted: 11 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.89 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Sperling VineyardsDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
