2016 Cave Spring Riesling Estate

2016 Cave Spring Riesling Estate

Feeling pretty smug today with some Canadian Riesling on paw. I haven’t had much dry (off-dry) wine from Canada, but maybe “thanks” to global warming, their wines are getting better for the table. Apples, oranges, lemons, apricots, yellow flowers, and a hint of petrol on the nose. Similar on the palate with nice acidity. There’s a tingle on the tongue of sweetness but the acidity really clears it out. This is some solid, solid stuff and could use some aging. Grab a few bottles and hide them in your cellar!
