Kurtis Kolt – The Georgia Straight – March 2017
I tasted all these wines in my office just last week when Noble swung by with them, and although I don’t put energy into keeping any sort of poker face when tasting with winemakers, there’s no way I could have maintained one upon trying this Riesling. After just one sip, I was automatically beaming, exclaiming: “Oh, wow!” So let’s allow that to stand as my initial tasting note.
Some lovely Ambrosia apple flavours fill the palate, and there’s even a touch of apple skin in there that provides some fine texture. What gets me most is the ginger notes that ride all the way through to the lengthy finish. I’m not talking ginger that may be on your baking rack but the fresh-sliced stuff that’s lively, clean, and zingy; it brings a really cool dimension to the wine.
