From the picturesque region of the South Okanagan, which enjoys 14 hours of sunshine daily during the summer months. This helps our Riesling grapes to fully mature and display their natural fruity flavours, with hints of lime and green apple. Riesling’s high acidity and pronounced fruit flavours give the grape exceptional aging potential.
