Sperling Vineyards Old Vines Riesling 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAnn Sperling biodynamically farms the Kelowna land her grandparents settled more than 150 years ago. he Old Vines Riesling is the winery flagship, held back two years prior to release. These vines were planted in 1978 and show their concentration in this dryish, textural, sleek riesling, driven by lime pith, lemon pith, quince, white honey to a snappy finish. This year there's a lactic / lees pear note on the mid that detracts from last year's purity, but the bright acidity and 11.5% package help distract.
