Wow… another wine find. I love a good Riesling, so Matt at Kitsilano Wine Cellars recommended this while I was in grabbing my Champagne(s) for New Year’s.
I opened it with some Thai food and loved it. It’s pale straw-coloured and the nose is all citrus and mineral notes… and when it hits your taste buds, there’s an explosion of floral-laced citrus fruit (lime! lemon!), honey and a flinty minerality.
This is a very flavourful, complex wine… a helluva’ Riesling – the first I’ve tried from Chile. If there are more like this, I’ll be having a bunch more in the year ahead.
$21 in private wine shops (Kits Wine) here in BC.
