2018 R&D Dry•ish Riesling
89 Points | Anthony Gismondi
"proving that riesling can excel in the warm southern Okanagan"
Fermented in stainless steel (100%).
Initial investigation into this aromatic Riesling involves bursting aromas of cantaloupe, yellow apple, and chalk, alongside subtle notes of honeysuckle and fruit salad preserve. Subsequent random sampling reveals succulent flavours of melon and pineapple to compliment the chalky mineral palate. The long finish suggests that another glass should be poured – for research, of course.
Sunday afternoon cookouts with buttermilk fried chicken, potato salad, and as many ‘family’ members who find themselves walking through the back gate.
