Synchromesh Wines Thorny Vines Riesling 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Thorny Vines vineyard, at the southern end of the Naramata Bench, the site faces gently north and was planted to 21B in 2010 on fertile heavy clay loam. The north facing site gives this crazy acidity (11.025), easily cutting through the 56 g/L RS. Stony and serious, yet juicy and bright, with Asian pear, lime pith and peel, mandarin, grapefruit, quince, tightening and drying on the lingering finish with a chalky / lime pith twist. A beauty, as ever, and at a boggling 7% to boot.
