Intense lime, lemon, pear, golden apple and a slight savoury lees like note on the nose. The palate is just off-dry,...

Incredible value BC Riesling. Opens with aromas of lemon/lime, yellow apple, tangerine, orange zest, some petrol/kerosene, lots of wet rock character, and savoury nuances of beeswax and nutmeg. On the medium-light palate, the fruit leans more toward green apple and pear, with the abundant minerality and citrus notes following through. The high acidity overwhelms whatever residual sugar there is, so the wine seems almost dry, or just on the edge of off-dry. The finish is medium-long, with the acidity and minerality really lingering.
