An intriguing, fascinating and “outside the box” style of Riesling, as is usually the case with Pearl Morissette. Even if this wine was fermented bone-dry, you still have a slight perception of sweetness but also a stunning creamy texture which offsets the austerity usually displayed in a dry Riesling. The wild-fermentation and aging (22 months) in large foudres and concrete tanks definitely helps with the softness and uniqueness of this Riesling. On the nose, aromas of jasmine, wet grass, petrol, ginger and lemon curds all intertwine and blend together to offer an oxidative nose and suggest a ready to drink wine. The palate is rich and complex offering flavours of Key lime pie, lemon drop, apple crumble, grilled pineapple, salty minerality and fresh ginger. This wine is in its prime right now and will shine for another two years easily. I’m a very big fan! (CWC, 08/28/23). 550 cases made.
