Peak Cellars Terraces Dry Riesling 2021

Lake Country, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt is year two for the dry riesling made with estate grapes that grow on low lying heavier clay soils known as Block 20. Two superstar clones, 21 and 49, bring vestiges of Germany and France (Alsace) to the mix. A long cool fermentation has issued a delicious drinking, bone dry riesling full of citrus, pomelo, green apples, and a touch of softness to entice. On the palate, honeysuckle spiced apricots, fresh-cut herbs, and a saline finish make it hard to put your glass down. Juicy, thirst-quenching and a dynamite food partner. The winery says it "screams for salt, fat and crunch! Raclette, fondue, pork belly, creamy cheeses, Pasta Carbonara, shrimp scampi, sushi, Caesar salad with fried capers or salad rolls."
