Tantalus, from Kelowna, makes the Old Vines Riesling Natural Brut. Aromas of lemon, lime, and stone fruit show notes of brioche on the creamy/fizzy finish.
Old Vines Riesling Natural Brut is a unique and complex sparkling white by Tantalus. Lemon, lime, and fresh stone fruit aromas create vitality on the nose, which segues to a lush palate of grapefruit and granny smith apples. Brioche and subtle toasted nuts speak to the two years of ageing in the bottle (just as champagne is made), and a noticeable mineral undertone rounds out the creamy/crispy palate. Impeccably balanced with a touch of Old Vines Riesling dosage, it's a new take on Riesling you'll want to pair with brunch or a charcuterie plate.
