Sperling Vineyards Old Vines Riesling 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Old Vines version of the Sperling riesling lineup is the winery flagship. It opens with a barely noticeable 10.4 g/L of residual sugar. It is all estate grown, both organic and biodynamic. The wine is made to reflect its origins and vineyard site, without makeup. The dominant soil feature is deep, mineralogical clay high in calcium, which seems to turbocharge this riesling. At 42 years of vine age, it has a fine concentration of dryish fruit flavours with a strong lemon-lime undercurrent in the finish. Great with food and fairly priced.Tasted: 19 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.89 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Sperling VineyardsDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
