Upper Bench Riesling 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThere is more elegance in 2022, but it is still big on freshness, opening with tart citrus and nectarine, with fresh Granny Smith apple and a hint of honey on the palate. When you make cheese, as Upper Bench does, it makes sense for your riesling to have this electric acidic edge to cut through every bite and cleanse the palate. Dry and austere but perfect for a variety of soft cheeses, the winery suggests that you match it with their King Cole blue cheese.Tasted: 11 October 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
