CedarCreek Riesling

Wine: Riesling 2018

Winery: CedarCreek, Kelowna

Why drink it? A tiny portion of this bright Riesling was fermented in French Oak, giving it a nice, subtle roundness. This is a grape that needs some attention in the vineyard so the sugars and acidity are balanced, then the wine expresses its citrus notes mixed with hints of granite on the nose as this one does. If you’ve avoided Riesling because it’s too sweet, you’ll find this one a delightful option. “Juicy acidity”, as the winery describes, but with flavours of lime and fresh grapefruit, and a refreshing finish. It’ll be interesting to taste this wine in a year or two.

Price: $19

Pair with: Lends itself to almost anything spicy, as it will calm down the heat from hot curries, spicier dim sum, or chili chicken bites. Tempura with a hot dipping sauce of soy sauce, sesame oil and mirin. Or just chill a bottle and enjoy after a Saturday of setting up the patio for summer.

Music pairing: April Will Come, Simon & Garfunkel
