St.Hubertus Riesling 2013
I love a great Riesling ! I have been on the lookout in Lake country and Kelowna area for the “great one”, Ha ha, yes well it’s is such a food friendly wine . I came across this 2013 vintage and thought I’d review as the 2014 vintage has won a Lieutenant Governor’s award ! I will review that one at a later date.
St. Hubertus is situated on the east shores of Kelowna , very close to shore for that matter and this climate is perfect for producing Riesling and that perfect acidity . They also have a delicious Dry Riesling by the way.
Anyway as we open the nose I detect a slight Petrol scent followed by Green apple and honey. The palate offers some stone fruit, citrus with crisp acidity well balanced with the sweetness followed by a dry finish. Very refreshing and quite elegant.
The acidity and sweetness is a must with Asian dishes and curries.
4/5 for value and Taste!
