After selling their successful men's underwear company, Trent and Ria Kitsch planted more than 5ha in northeast Kelowna, including two Riesling parcels. The cooler Maria’s Block is made in a medium-dry style while the sun-soaked Esther’s Block is left barely off-dry. A suggestion of nuts makes way for crab apple and lime marmalade. Focused and linear with a sneaky tactile grip, this mineral-led, citrus-accented wine reaches a slatey crescendo.
