DISCOVER THE TRULY UNIQUE STYLES OF OKANAGAN RIESLING
There’s a Perfect Glass of Riesling for Every Occasion
Here at CedarCreek, we have considerable vineyard plantings of Riesling, with the first block planted 30 years ago this year. This is our Block 3 Riesling and we make it in a dry style. Because of the vines’ age, they naturally produce very little fruit. That fruit, however, is concentrated and rich, allowing us to make a wine with fresh acidity but balanced by the weight that concentration brings. This wine is consistently rated as one of the best Rieslings in British Columbia and I wholeheartedly believe it belongs in that group. Try it with scallops or fresh oysters on the half shell.
Our Estate Riesling is made in a different style. We are picking the vineyards for this wine with lots of natural acidity, and we use residual sugar to balance that acidity. This wine is juicy, fresh and shows great citrus and tropical fruit concentration. Perfect as a wine to pair with spicy coconut curries, Tacos Al Pastor, and tuna poke. This wine was awarded the Wolf Blass trophy for best off-dry Riesling at the Canberra Riesling Challenge, and it consistently punches above its weight in quality. It is a great example of how juicy fruit and fresh acid can bring life to a wine.
Finally, our 2017 Platinum Icewine. Icewine is harvested, transported, and pressed at the winery all at temperatures below -8°C. But the result is always worth the effort – golden, sugary, sweet and very flavorful juice is fermented into wine with many of the same qualities. A style originating in Germany, most regions in Germany no longer get cold enough for icewine (Eiswein) so Canada now has the market cornered, but for good reason. These are beautifully sweet, rich and generous wines that pair surprisingly well with food. Try a baked tart or even an aged cheese such as cheddar with some apricot preserve.
In addition, enjoy complimentary shipping on orders of 2 bottles of wine or more.
