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!

2016 Hyland Estates Old Vine Riesling Single Vineyard

Oh heyyy… Enjoying some much needed sun as it turns to spring! Honeysuckle, Meyer lemon, honeycomb, and a hint of orange on the nose. Lemons, browning pears, and apricots on the palate with minerality mid-palate. Bone dry with tongue-tickling acidity.
