Culmina 2016 Decora (Riesling)

Another one from the Culmina wine tasting. Pale in color with a nice crisp nose. On the mid palate when first served the wine displays some very nice crisp dry notes, lots of minerality and some citrus notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some vibrant acidity that builds beautifully in the mouth. This would be a super food friendly wine. As the wine warmed up it evolved in the glass and the typical riseling flavors came through with some nice honeysuckle and maybe even some stone fruits. The complexity of this wine was excellent. I would give it an 88-89. Probably one of the best Rieslings I have had in a very long time. Not in the LCBO but available by the case from Woodman wine and Spirits or directly from the winery.

From the winery’s web site:
Harvested from the 6th crop of Riesling on Margaret’s Bench, and Latin for pretty or fine, Decora is an intensely aromatic Riesling that whets the palate with mouth-watering acidity. Showing delicate spice, floral, and stone fruit aromas, Decora displays pronounced flavours of citrus, mineral, and stone fruit, creating a wine of outstanding vivacity, delicacy, elegance, and style. $23
