8th Generation Riesling Classic 2011

Clear, pale gold in the glass. Almost-medium intensity nose of citrus and dry grass. Just off-dry, high acidity, medium body. Very sharp citrus flavours, particularly lemon and grapefruit; sweetness and a hint of stone fruit. Lingering acidity in the medium-plus length. Overall good: not complex and the tart acidity and citrus is a bit overpowering. Enjoyable, but not as much of a standout as some of their previous efforts (see my notes on the 200620072008, and 2009). 11.9% alcohol. $25 at Kitsilano Wine Cellar. See 8th Generation Vineyard and their notes on this vintage.
