Tantalus Old Vines Riesling 2013, British Columbia Add to ...

  • Rating 92
  • Year 2013
  • Region Okanagan Valley
  • Varietal Riesling
  • Food Pairing Shellfish, young cheeses
  • Price $30.35 in B.C.

This is big, powerful riesling from a great B.C. producer. Bracing acidity underscores delectable lime and grapefruit flavours along with notes of spring flowers and crisp peach. Fans of classic Mosel riesling will by impressed by the chalky, wet-stone character, too. Worth cellaring for five years at least (more if you like fine older whites) to build complexity. Great for shellfish, young cheeses or as an apéritif. Available direct, tantalus.ca.
