Creekside Estates Winery 2006 Butler’s Grant Vineyard Riesling - $15.95

Last year (2005) was Creekside’s first effort making a “Butler’s Grant” single vineyard Riesling, and by the label you can see it was from the Butler’s Grant Vineyard. Like with most things this winemaking team of Craig MacDonald and Rob Powers touches of late, they turned yet another wine into liquid gold. Lighting has struck again in 2006 with this version. Good crisp acidity is the backbone, surrounded by peachy-minerality and some sweet honeydew flavours. Another great Riesling that’ll stand the test of time, and a few years in the cellar; though it drinks wonderfully well right now.
