Synchromesh Wines Thorny Vines Riesling 2012

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLibrary tasting. This first vintage of Thorny Vines is showing beautifully now, in the chapter of revealing some age, but holding its fruit. Pear core, eraser, sweet pear and lime, with a grippy lime pithy finish, and exceptional length. Earthy, savoury line coming through now four years along. Exceptional value. If you have in your cellar, wait. But if you can't, you're lucky. Thorny Vines Vineyard lies at the southern end of Naramata Bench, the cooler, north facing vineyard reflected in the racy acidity. 9.8 percent alcohol.Tasted: 16 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct Producer: Synchromesh Wines Inc.Distributors: Artisan Food and Beverage Group Inc.
