Quails' Gate Dry Riesling

Quails' Gate Dry Riesling 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA slight change this year in the fruit mix has turbo charged this riesling, giving it a legitimate edge. The fruit is harvested selectively using a combination of early and late picks from both East and West Kelowna vineyard sites. The early fruit adds acidity and freshness; the second round adds deeper tones and orange. Expect a fresh, green, lime/apple affair lined with orange flecks and a dry, mineral bite in the back. Clean as a whistle and made for crab cakes, veal picatta, pork belly and most summer salads. A pitch perfect riesling given its stellar price.Tasted: 04 July 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 15.99 BCLS AB 18.00 private wine shops MB 16.99 Manitoba's Liquor Mart YK 18.90 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
