Riesling, Upper Bench Winery, Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, BC VQA, 12.5% abv, 2013, $C19

2015-riesling-4-bottles-1200x1293Looking for something that tastes good and won’t kill your wallet after you pay for the Thai food delivery and your tom yum goong?

A trustworthy effort from the Upper Bench Winery from just outside of Penticton, this Riesling is deep straw in colour with aromas of pomelo and lemon pith with crushed rocks and a tiny whiff of petrol.

It’s lightly off dry too – 8.3g/L of RS – which will help it pair perfectly with that Thai order.  Enjoy its juicy acidity and flavours of Meyer lemon, yellow grapefruit, citrus zest and more crushed stone.
