This is one of the top BC Rieslings I’ve tasted to date. After enjoying the 2016, the 2017 Riesling from Intersection showcases a new direction with winemaker Melissa Smits. I detect a fresher and lighter approach and I’m sure the crazy 2017 growing season has something to do with it. The nose opens on a bright aromatic minerality with a slight petroleum note. Bright grapefruit and strong lemon peel complete this very fragrant entry. The palate is very fresh and possesses a great creamy texture. This wine has a load of complexity. Lemon, lime, grapefruit, and green apples are the main fruit components, going in succession. Lemongrass and ginger fill the middle palate while flint and chalky minerality bring a very long finish. Even with 18.2 g/ltr of RS, this wine feels dry due to a very high acidic structure. Beyond impressive!!! (re-tasted 03/22). 284 cases produced.
