Arrowleaf Cellars 2016 Riesling

Our Riesling is grown in the Ritchie Vineyard, located on Okanagan Lake just north of Kelowna. The climate here is cool in grape growing terms and the 2016 vintage was a stellar one for white wines. It was average in terms of temperature but it started early and ended up being one of the longest growing seasons on record. This is a significant advantage for ripening aromatic white wines and the 2016 vintage gave us a Riesling with great flavour and concentration. Floral, apricot, pineapple and lemon aromas. On the palate it presents itself as a dry wine, with a prominent streak of fresh acidity that is the hallmark of the Riesling grape. The residual sugar is barely perceptible, yet it softens the acidity just enough to lift the fruit and let the flavours shine.
