/ 2012 QG Riesling

Crisp and dry with great acid, Quail's Gate's Riesling is made from the estate vines that are over 25 years old. This noble variety is the perfect pairing wine for seasonal salads. True Riesling lovers will appreciate this wines cellaring potential which will allow the acids to soften over time and integrate with the rich Riesling flavours.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Alluring and attractive aromas mingle with classic ripe lemon-lime and rose petal notes. Our 2012 Dry Riesling has a fine, delicate entry but is rich and lush on the mid-palate. Juicy acidity is balanced with a hint of residual sweetness. It offers a wonderful combination of fresh minerality and a long lingering finish.
Winemaker Notes
The Riesling grapes were handpicked in late October from 28 year old vines grown in South Kelowna and our Quails’ Gate Estate vineyards. Deep roots that extend into the subsoil of Boucherie Mountain bring complex mineral and slate notes to the fruit. This wine is whole bunch pressed and cold fermented in stainless tanks for over 3 weeks to add character and complexity. Classic aged Riesling characteristics will develop in the bottle over a 2–3 year period. However, for those not faint of heart, careful cellaring of 7-10 years can produce a truly exceptional wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Light chicken, fish or vegetarian dishes. Roasted root vegetables or lemon caper halibut.
