This edition of Tantalus Riesling is very similar to the 2007: lively acidity with some spice and plenty of apple, pear and tropical fruit on the nose. Overall, the balance is better with a bit of residual sugar to offset the tartness. Good BC Riesling and worth cellaring for a few years.

This slightly more distinguished Tantalus offering (vinification tied to a 34 year old block of Riesling) has a smidge more nuanced character than the mainstay product: the nose is showing some aging with notes of gasoline and stewed stone fruit infused with peach cordial. The palate receives a one-two punch of bracing acidity and more stone fruit with zero sweetness. Balance is lacking at the moment as structure is the game here and the wine will last at least another decade in the bottle. Delicious if mouth-puckering, this wine is built for collectors intent on aging a wine to optimality. An Alsatian style with real BC verve. 89 points.
