8th Generation 2006 Riesling

Really enjoyed the 2007 “Dry” Riesling, and there were a few bottles of the 2006 left at TaylorWood Wines.

This vintage is pale silver-gold with medium citrus-apricot and a hint of sweetness on the nose. A little drier than the 2006 with a strong acidity that almost obscures hints of green apple, stone fruit and honey. Although it hints, perhaps, at the quality to come in the 2007 vintage, this is not one of the better BC Rieslings I’ve tasted (this is the ninth I’ve tried recently). See 8th Generation Vineyard.
