"There is some seriously good viticulture & wine making going on here"

David Lawrason

 

Sperling Vineyards Chardonnay 2012 VQA

 

"High alititude expression from a vineyard perched atop a gravel bed, a rocky pool of stone that seems to toss-up pebbles at Sperling's window to see if she would like to sneak away for a midnight drive. A crisp, clean and linear style, full of night-air freshness, white flowers and white fruit. This is undeniably picked early and ahead of any possible oxidative or overripe window, yet there is a rich quality about it that rages against the machine, calm like a bomb, "its narrative fearless." Very mineral in its direct back and to the side of the mouth attack, full of salinity and lemon-lime acidity. Long, long Okanagan that will flesh with five years time. The slate bass line will soften, allowing the white fruit to further shine. Tasted twice, May and July 2014

Sperling Vineyards Old Vines Riesling 2012 VQA ($32)

 

A few years of maturity have allowed this wine to begin showing classic petrol aromas. It has flavours of honey and lime with a hint of botrytis. With good weight and with a tangy finish, this is a wine that will age well. 92

 

Sperling Vineyards The Market White 2014 VQA ($17)

 

This is a lovely aromatic white with spice and citrus aromas and flavours of lime and ripe cantaloupe. The finish, which is off-dry, lingers. 90
