2013 Riesling gleams in Vancouver’s Westender

“At first glance, the Riesling from Tantalus has always been cheery and easy-to-drink, a definite crowd-pleaser full of stone fruit and citrus. It’s when you begin to ponder what’s in your glass that you realize that what you’re sipping has a lot more to it. There’s a clean expression of our mineral-rich Okanagan soils, those soils the result of glaciers passing through the Valley millennia ago. The fruit itself gleams, held aloft by pitch-perfect acidity, a result of winemaker David Paterson’s hand not getting too meddlesome in the process.”
