The riesling, all clone 21B, is lively with bright lemon-lime fruit, Okanagan sagebrush and a slightly greener bent.

Winemaking notes

He takes a micro view of the vineyard, working single blocks or rows of vines, and employing only gravity to move his wine five times through the six-level winery (a facility that tellingly does not contain a pump). In general, the riesling is hand sorted and they do not crush all the berries, before they go to press with no sulphur. The juice is settled and stirred, and the ferment runs 7 to 14 days at 16 to 18C before aging on its lees for six to nine months for richness and texture.
