Red Rooster Riesling
Clear and bright with a pretty aroma of lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, mineral and white flower. This medium-dry, light to medium-bodied Riesling has refreshing acidity that masks the expected sweetness, and tangerine, orange, pineapple and green apple flavours awaken the palate (better to be awakened by Riesling than by a Rooster). A bowl full of refreshing citrus fruit flavours and site specific minerality linger on the finish. Enjoy while young and fresh
Hand-picked from Hidden Terrace Vineyard in Oliver (located in the north end of town) in the Okanagan Valley, on October 21. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel to develop a pure focused fruit expression.
