WineDiva's Review

Superb, precision, racy.
Riesling geeks unite! Tantalus has so many devoted fans, their Rieslings are their flagship and this old vines version is an iconic BC wine.
Made from estate grown, sustainably farmed and low cropped 35+ year old vines, this apogee wine has incredible precision and stamina.
Lemon drops, green apples, peach stone and whiffs of petrol are served up. The palate wound tightly with impressive tension; crunchy white fruits and citrus flavours dominate. Racy and superb.
