Rigour and Whimsy Riesling

$47.70

“This wine comes from the steepest section of God’s Mountain Vineyard, facing west over Skaha Lake just north of Okanagan Falls. The dangerously graded plot was backbreakingly tended by the Costa, Jody, and a legion of dedicated and masochistic part-timers. Their only non-organic treatment was for leafhoppers, a particularly malicious pest last year. The grapes were whole cluster pressed into stainless steel after a mid-October harvest. After realizing their nitrogen levels were dangerously low for a healthy ferment, they opted to add diammonium phosphate (placing this wine outside our definition of ‘natural wine’) and a few buckets of already fermenting must from another cuvée to get things kickstarted. The wine was then moved to older barrels for a short élevage. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Only 139 cases were made, and they’ve unfortunately lost the lease at this site, so we’ll likely never see this cuvée again.” – Juice Imports
