Synchromesh Wines Four Shadows Vineyard Riesling 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSynchromesh has earned their street cred as THE riesling producers in BC, and on par with the best in Canada. This is one of four single vineyard rieslings released this year. Alan Dickinson works with many different ferments within each vineyard, isolating the ones which best signify the site. Four Shadows Vineyard is an exciting, higher altitude steep sloping gravelled site on Naramata Bench, facing east towards Penticton. Fragrant apricot blossoms, apricot flesh, honeysuckle are drawn across an Auslese-styled, Pfalz-like palate, with concentrated viscosity matched by surging limey acidity. Lemoned caramel lingers on the lengthy finish. An astounding 52 g/l RS, absorbed handily. 10.6 percent alcohol; fantastic value.Tasted: 30 May 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Synchromesh Wines Inc.Distributors: Artisan Food and Beverage Group Inc.
