Tantalus Riesling, 2012

056Sharply acidic and predominantly lemon with a nuanced candy floss teaser on the finish.  A most pleasant Okanagan Riesling and a lovely expression of the breadth of this varietal.  Yet more proof that “gentle” whites excel where the vineyards are awash in hefty reds.  In the heat of summer, with a salade nicoise or fish or light fare this is a perfect pairing.  There is a reserve at $10 more, even harder to source.


Oh, and great label.


Price: $27.99 at Legacy, $24.90 at Marquis, $23 at the vineyard.


Market Liquidity: Hard to find but worth finding.
