WineDiva's Review

Harper's Trail is one of only a handful of wineries pioneering the Kamloops wine region along the South Thompson River. Owned by Ed and Vicki Collett, who have used winemaker Michael Bartier as a consultant since day one, Harper's Trail now has their own winery and has large expansion plans for the next decade or so.
Their estate is home to highly regarded limestone soils, which are responsible for making some of the world's greatest wines.
This outstanding Riesling offers lemon drops and green apples, chalky limestone, mountain stream minerality and a slight smokiness. The palate echoes a dominant mineral character, which adds complexity and focus. Intense with a a kiss of sweetness and a long lip-smacking finish.

Recommended Pairings
