Flavours Magazine with Winemaker David Paterson and Kelowna’s Waterfront Wines

Tantalus winemaker David Paterson is featured in the Spring 2014 edition of Flavour Magazine’s “CLOSEUP” with a crisp, fresh pairing from Chef Mark Filatow of Waterfront Wines.

A snippet from the article written by Canadian sommelier Mireille Sauvé:

“At Tantalus, Paterson works exclusively with estate-grown fruit, so it’s important for him to spend time in the vineyards, supervising and assisting with everything from spreading compost to checking the health of the vines. “The wine is defined by the vineyard,” he says. “If we bring in excellent grapes, I don’t need to do a lot of winemaking.” Apparently, his system is working: Tantalus’ Riesling and Old Vines Riesling consistently earn top marks on the international judging circuit, making the Okanagan Valley an international hotspot for this aromatic white varietal.”
