The JoieFarm "En Famille" tier is a reserve line for site-specific wines, all aged in bottle for a year prior to the release. The riesling is from an old block St. Hubertus Vineyard in Kelowna (planted 1987) and from Summerland's Whitfield Road Vineyard. The style is juicy and mouth-fillingly with lime gummies, perfumed pear, ripe white peach and an alluring lick of anise. Off-dry (Spätlese-style) and medium bodied, this finishes with crystalline lime peel and a sour ginger ale spicy warmth with a friendly 12 percent alcohol. You can drink this now or wait three years for the secondary flavours to kick in.
