Grown at our Freedom 75 vineyard our Riesling is exclusively clone 21B from Giesenhiem which is proving to be the best suited for the Okanagan Valley, specifically for the Naramata Bench. This vineyard consists of mostly fine sandy loam with a moderate amount of clay and no rocks.
Elegant notes of lavender, thyme flowers and white peaches are part of its complex bouquet. Our Riesling Clone 21B is vibrant with flavours of Key lime, Golden Delicious apple and Nasturtium blossoms. A strong note of minerality (river stones, wet shale/flint) adds another layer of complexity. This wine has a hint of sweetness to compliment the naturally racy acidity of this Riesling Clone, creating a supremely balanced wine.
Pairs wonderfully with crispy roast pork or cellar it for up to 7 years from vintage date to enjoy a honeyed palate with hints of lime marmalade and baked apple – perfect with a triple cream Brie!
