Sperling Vineyards Old Vines Riesling 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA redo after two years is always special, especially if the subject is riesling. The Sperling Old Vines is the winery flagship grown in limestone-laced clay and planted in 1978. It has 10.4 g/L of residual sugar, but you won’t notice it, given the acidity and the overwhelming robust flavours that run through the wine. It is genuine riesling without makeup, made for riesling geeks who appreciate the nuance of lemon-lime, white pepper, pear blossoms, and oatmeal. Aged and impressive, you need to give it a chance at this price.Tasted: 03 July 2022Tasted by: Prices:
