Kalala 2007 Riesling

Third on my recent list of BC Rieslings is this organic wine from the Okanagan Valley. Very light clear silvery appearance. Nice grapefruit-petrol nose with just a hint of apricot. Dry with good acidity; grapefruit notes are most prominent and there’s a very nice earthy mineral quality. So far the best of the BC Rieslings I’ve been tasting; sometimes I think that organic wineries have that edge because of the purity of growing methods: flavours are preserved just that much better. Well-priced at about CAD$17. Kalala Organic Estate Winery.
