The Thorny Vines property is located at the southern end of the Naramata Bench, immediately north of Penticton.
Benefitting from the moderating effects of Okanagan Lake, this cooler North facing vineyard enjoys slow, steady ripening with good acid retention.
The vineyard consists entirely of German clone 21B vines that are hand farmed by the family owners. Individual vine attention, a sustainable philosophy and drive to create premium quality Riesling are at the heart of this property. Bright lemon, lime zest and ripe apple on the nose lead to honey, lemon tart and a long chalky almost dry finish.
