Pearl Morissette - Cuvée Sputnik Riesling

Pearl Morissette - Cuvée Sputnik Riesling

PEARL MORISSETTE

A more “typical” bottling of Riesling from the man, Francois pulls this fruit from a cool, lakeside site, ferments in a combination of wood, steel and concrete, creating a textural, yet super refreshing, and expressive bottling. Floral and lime dominant nose, with wet stone, and even a whisper of peach, lovely on every sniff. Bracing freshness, well integrated to the overall mouth feel which is generous, but perfectly dry. A genuinely awesome effort and fine example of the varietal.
