  • My Rating: [B-]

Riesling (God’s Mountain Vineyard) – Wild Goose Vineyards, 13.6% ABV – 750ml, (Okanagan Falls, BC, Canada) (*local BC wine)


on the back label:

“God’s mountain Vineyard is one of the most spectacular and rugged sites in the Okanagan. Grown in clay and sand solids, their roots esconced in deep gravel deposits, these 18 year-old vines are meticulously tended using biodynamic growing techniques. The result is a smaller but more concentrated fruit, floral, clover, apple and mineral flavours with clean citrus notes. This dry wine pairs beautifully with cheeses, chicken, pork, and seafood.”
