Township 7 Rigel Seven Stars 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSourced from a block of clone 21B riesling at Fool's Gold Vineyard in North Oliver, the primary fermentation for this sparkling riesling is cool and in stainless, followed by 12 months on lees prior to disgorgement. The winemaking approach is about retaining riesling's aromatics, and that's clear in the glass with an attractive nose of delicate lime blossom, zesty citrus, and subtle lees. Precise, textured, and chalky, this finishes just off-dry with a 10 g/L dosage. Well made and a perfect aperitif to pair wth shellfish. Only 246 six-packs produced, available through Township 7's Seven Stars club.Tasted: 17 October 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 32.97 wine club member exclusive Producer: Township 7 Vineyards and WineriesDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
