Peak Cellars Sparkling Riesling 2019

Lake Country, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom a high elevation block of riesling at Carr's Landing Vineyard in Lake Country, this traditional method sparkling wine aged on its lees for nearly a year before disgorgement, though it's not overly autolytic. It's fruit-driven with no shortage of riesling character, led by zesty lime and aromatic white blossoms, with good character and definition to the fruit. The palate is quite racy and austere, with just a 5 g/L dosage, and a soft mousse. You'll want to pair this with something to balance that acidity, like a warm goat cheese salad.Tasted: 04 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 38.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: O'Rourke's Peak CellarsDistributors: Revelry Import Company
