2019 Thorny Vines Vineyard Riesling $28 ($24.35 Wine Club Price)
RS 75.52 g/l
About a third of the way up the Naramata Bench with a Northern aspect, the Thorny Vines property is lovingly cared for by the Hornby-Smiths. Reaching into slightly richer loamy soils, these vines bring palate weight and a linear acidity not seen from our other properties.
Citrus and mandarin explode on the nose leading to a very textured mouthfeel of tropical fruit and apple. A sweet kiss lifts the fruit until the Thorny Vines acidity wipes it clean to a nearly dry finish.
