Black Swift Vineyards 2016 Kurkjian Farm Riesling ,

This unique sub-region of the Okanagan Valley is particularly suited for this noble grape variety. The beauty of Riesling, aside from the fact it’s the most ethereal of the white grapes, is the diversity of wines that Riesling can produce. The deep clay in the soil allows for optimal ripening and results in a wine that is much more on the muscular and intense side of things with laser acid delivering stone fruit, citrus while underlined with true minerality. Sexy petrol notes are starting to form, which makes this wine an interesting cellar candidate. Make sure to buy a few bottles of this wine and watch and enjoy its long evolution ahead.

Only 250 cases made.
Drink now or cellar for 8+ years.

“The deep clay soils of Kurkjian Farm make what winemaker Jason Parkes would term a more muscular, intense riesling with a pronounced firm, dry acid bent. The four-acre vineyard located in East Kelowna, just below Summerhill Winery, is certified organic. As noted previously its bone-dry styling reminds us of the Clare and Eden Valleys. Again, the electric East Kelowna, salty, mineral style carries the day, suggesting this wine will keep for years in the bottle. Love the style and so will food lovers. 89 points – Anthony Gismondi, Gismondi on Wine. Tasted January 5th 2018
