Cedar Creek winemaker Darryl Brooker has only been in the Okanagan for just over a year, but if this Riesling is any indication, he is feeling right at home.
Wonderfully vibrant with bright and fresh aromas of lime and other citrus fruits. Tightly knit and focussed on the palate with crunchy apple and lime flavours, plenty of zippy acidity, refreshing minerality, a clean mouth-watering finish and a nice bit of ripe juicy fruit lingering on the mid-palate. Relatively low 11.3% alcohol really increases the drinkability of this wine.
Hopefully this is an indication of the style for future Rieslings from this winery. A great match with salads, shellfish, oysters, Thai, Indian, Malaysian and other Asian cuisines or for just sipping. (GB - Tidings, September 2011)
Beautifully integrated mix of lime, peach and slate marks this delicate, firmly structured Riesling, with intense minerality, sleek, beautifully defined and a lively crisp acidity. The sweetness is perfectly balanced by the fresh acidity and nuances of wet rocks. The perfect match with roasted butternut squash and lentil salad. (GB - Tidings, January 2011)
Brazenly aromatic with beautifully floral and spicy notes, fresh, intense and focused with lychee, citrus peel and exotic fruit with a lifted lime finish possessing length and distinction. (GB - Tidings, April 2012)
Ripe, fresh and juicy, brimming with mineral-scented apricot and mango with a hint of savoury herbs and ginger spice, great backbone, lovely fresh sweetness, but with bright, bracing acidity on the intensely long, lively finish. (GB - Tidings, April 2012)
Elegant, intense and fresh with a fine balance of sweet apricot, pineapple, honey and lemon-candy against a razor's edge of clean, sharp acidity. Stylish and refined, will gain more complexity with a little time in the cellar. A nice match with seared foie gras. (GB - Tidings, March 2011)
