Intensely flavoured, racy and mineral, the 2015 Riesling is in the typical Little Farm style – all about power and minerality. Lime zest, green apple and hints of exotic tangerine with a little stone fruit lead into a long, electric finish full of oyster shell minerality. Bone dry with high acidity there is a richness to the mid-palate texture from 10 months ageing on the lees to balance the zippy acidity.
2016 Mulberry Tree Vineyard Chardonnay $30 (incl. taxes & bottle deposit) – 240 Cases Produced
The 2016 Chardonnay has a complex nose combining savoury toasted almond, butter and bread dough lees notes with lemon, peach and nectarine. The palate shows a lovely, almost creamy, texture from the neutral oak and lees ageing before the trademark racy, crisp, mineral acidity kicks in and lasts through a long, electric finish.
2016 Pied de Cuve Riesling $30 (incl. taxes & bottle deposit) – 156 Cases Produced
Unfined and unfiltered, this natural expression of Riesling was 100% fermented and aged in old, neutral barrels. Very slightly cloudy in appearance, it launches with an intense nose showing white flowers, white peach, lemon, golden apple, honey and lime. The palate is rich textured yet bone dry with crisp, racy, stony mineral acidity kicking in to give the backbone to the citrus, spice and stone fruit that lingers through an incredibly long finish.
2016 Pied de Cuve Chardonnay $35 (incl. taxes & bottle deposit) – 120 Cases Produced
Aged and fermented in old, neutral barrels, this Chardonnay combines complex citrus, white peach and nectarine with lots of savoury lees and subtle nut aromas. The palate is crisp and fresh with lots of citrus fruit and also richly textured with almond and lees before the racy, stony minerality kicks in on the long finish. Unfined and unfiltered.
Orange-gold in colour and slightly cloudy it shows intense and complex aromas of orange oil, bergamot, potpourri, peach skin, pineapple, dried apricot, rose flower water, clove and Turkish Delight that keeps unfolding in the glass. The palate is dry, crisp and textured with blood orange zest, spice and subtle grippy tannins with a very long finish.
A crisp, refreshing, dry and savoury rosé. The nose shows juicy red fruit like strawberry, red berries, some orange zest, spice and savoury dried herb notes. The palate is dry, crisp and refreshing with bright red fruit, some savoury lees texture and complexity and a long finish with stony mineral notes that speak of the Similkameen Valley.
