Narrative Riesling by Okanagan Crush Pad 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Matt Dumayne shepherded this Golden Mile Bench riesling from vineyard to bottle employing a native yeast ferment in a concrete tank before extra ageing in stainless steel. The wine is bright, and as Treve would say, joyous and juicy, with the perfect mix of complexity and sweetness. The plate is mildly tropical with pineapple/pear red apple fruit that remains intense from front to back, all the while balanced by its minerality and acidity. The Narrative line is to be a pure or natural view of the Okanagan, at a fair price, and as we have said before this riesling is their poster child.Tasted: 05 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 22.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
