Spierhead Riesling, Okanagan Valley BC, 2010
Readers rated this wine:
Located in the south east of Kelowna, Spierhead, one of British Columbia's newest wineries, is making its mark with ex-CedarCreek winemaker Tom DiBello as vigneron.
Delicate, yet almost austere aromas of spring blossoms, lemon drops and lime oil, mineral and a suggestion of stone fruit. Snappy and focused in the mouth - green apples and apricot, honey and citrus flavours snap, crackle and pop across your palate. It is a lovely, dry Riesling with a lip-smacking finish.
