New reviews from east of BC rolling in for our 2015 Riesling!
“Every wine lover loves good riesling. Strikes a near-perfect balance of sweetness (it’s quite dry), acid, mineral, and apple-type fruit. So freakin’ delicious.” – Tom Firth, August 2016,EatNorth.com
“Kelowna-based Tantalus Vineyards has long set the bar for cooler-climate B.C. wines, and I couldn’t be more pleased to see the winery back in the Winnipeg market. The Tantalus 2015 Riesling (Okanagan Valley, B.C. — $21.97, Liquor Marts and beyond) offers complex lemon, green apple, lime as well as modest herbal, spice and chalky aromas. On the dry, light-bodied but incredibly vibrant palate, the green apple, lime, chalky, grapefruit and sour lemon notes come with medium acidity, making this a remarkable food-friendly white. The best B.C. Riesling I’ve tasted in a long time. 4.5/5″ – Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson, September 2016, The Winnipeg Free Press
