BC Riesling for Summer Sips

So far, I’ve covered BC Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir for summer sips. Another varietal you may want to consider is Riesling. Riesling can be made in a bone dry, citrusy style, through to a very luscious sweet ice wine. I think that there will be some style of riesling that would fit your taste.

Checking again on the www.EverythingWine.ca website, I’ve come up with the following wines in the $15-$25 range (you can click on the links and go to the EverythingWine.ca website to see how many bottles are in stock):

From a check of past notes, I have tried some of these wines. My notes are as follows:

Dirty Laundry Vineyard Riesling, 2008. Pale lemon colour. Green apple aroma and crisp apple flavour. Tart. Refreshing.

Kalala Organic Estate Winery, 2008. Crisp acidity, pineapple and apple aromas with a hint of petrol. (It won a Gold at the 2010 New World Int’l Wine Competition in California, a Silver in the 2010 Concours mondial de Bruxelles, and a Bronze at the 2010 Northwest Wine Summit.)

Kettle Valley Winery Riesling 2008, has a bit of residual sugar with some apple, flower and citrus aromas, and apple with a bit of petrol flavours.

Cheers!
