Culmina Family Estate Susser Riesling No. 018 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada2021 marks the eighteenth release in the Number Series and the second Susser Riesling I have seen. The nose is open and fragrant with sweet fruit notes of peach and apricot. Again, there is a delicacy here but plenty of residual sugar tagged at 54.88 grams /litre, which puts it in the range of a German spatlese. The fruit comes off Block X2, a cool corner of vines on Arise Bench planted to clone 21. The Susser tag is a direct translation of the German for sweeter, and it more than adequately reflects the overall final impression of the wine. Think light desserts or spicy dishes. Serve chilled.Tasted: 23 July 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
