Clear, pale gold with a slight green tint. Clean, medium intensity citrus, green apple, and floral-spice nose. Off-dry, high acidity, and light bodied, dominated by stone fruit and a strong minerality; Okanagan fruit comes through. Good length. Overall very good; one of the better BC Rieslings I’ve had. 12.2% alcohol; $28 at Steamworks Wine Thief. See Tantalus Vineyards (warning: Flash site).
I look forward to trying the 2010 old vines if it is produced; I really liked the 2008.
