The Thorny Vines property is located at the southern end of the Naramata Bench, immediately north of Penticton. Benefiting from the moderating effects of Okanagan Lake, this cooler North facing vineyard enjoys slow, steady ripening with good acid retention. The vineyard consists entirely of German clone 21B vines that are hand farmed by the family owners.
Individual vine attention, a sustainable philosophy and drive to create premium quality Riesling are at the heart of this property.
Honeycomb and sweet Asian pear are lifted by lemon zest in the mouth. A sweet fruit attack that dries aggressively on the finish.
