B.M.V. Riesling

A new wine to our collection, this beautiful barrel-fermented Riesling was made in tribute to the Okanagan’s first age-worthy Riesling, produced in the 1980’s at Jordan & Ste-Michelle Winery in Kelowna, using fruit from our Family’s Boucherie Mountain Vineyards.

Tasting & Pairing

Aromas of fragrant white flowers and white peach greet you on the nose while the palate bursts with lime, green apple and nectarine flavours. Expect the same bright fruit flavours on the palate with notes of wet stones that are so typical of our terroir. Barrel fermentation gives the wine a rich mouthfeel while the vibrant acidity balances the touch of sweetness and leads to a long, precise finish.

The off-dry style and vibrant acidity make the B.M.V Riesling a versatile food wine. Try pairing with fish like cured steelhead trout with Indian spices or fresh fish tacos with tropical salsa. It would also be lovely with roasted pork and apple sauce, spicy South East Asian cuisine or even a cheese platter with semi-soft and blue cheeses.

Winemaking

2017 was a consistently warm, dry vintage. The grapes were picked between October 17 and 20 and possessed exceptional fruit flavours. The wine was whole cluster pressed and the free-run juice was racked off to neutral oak barrels where it underwent wild yeast fermentation. It was kept in cask for a further 2-months to add complexity and mouthfeel. The end result is a beautifully balanced, exuberant Riesling that we feel will age incredibly well.

Enjoy now or until 2027
