2008 Twenty Mile Bench

2008 Flat Rock Cellars

2008 Flat Rock Cellars Nadja's Vineyard Riesling, VQA Twenty Mile Bench

The first wine of Oyster Dinner.

This is always a favourite, value wine for me. Balanced, tingly, with all the beautiful fruit you want from a riesling. Beginning to show a lanolin minerality. Acidity shows brilliantly, with just the perfect amount of residual sugar to give a nice bit of extract and richness. Nice.

With the oysters - maybe a bit too lean. But this wine is just so drinkable. Easy on the palate.
