Vineyards
Riesling fruit for the Dry Riesling comes from our best grower vineyards in the Columbia Valley. Sunny days and cool evening temperatures create ideal conditions for intense aroma and flavour development in the ripening grapes. Riesling grapes were picked under cool night-time skies to preserve the variety's bright, juicy style and retain the natural acidity

Vinification
Ripe grapes were destemmed and inoculated with various strains of yeast to maximize complexity. Gentle pump-overs during fermentation were used to extract colour and flavour and produce soft, supple tannins. Aged 14 months in French and American oak, 32% new.

Tasting Notes
The wine offers aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit flavours and a long, smooth, sweet finish. A touch of Syrah adds a jammy fruit character.
