Joie Farms Riesling 2008

I’ve been waiting for this one and ran into it unexpectedly after it had been on the shelf at Broadway International Wine Shop for just half an hour. Joie’s 2007 Riesling was one of my favourites of last year, and showed real promise for BC Rieslings. Distinctive nose—I am tempted to say I could detect a Joie wine—with little hint of sweetness: pineapple-sage on the nose. Medium body with nice crispness, good acidity, and ever so slightly off-dry. Honey and citrus notes, great balance. Another winner from Joie.
