  • Winemaker David Paterson in MACLEAN’S Magazine | Tantalus
    scenes look at what s happening in the Canadian wine industry Paterson wants to raise the bar on another cool weather varietal pinot noir He uses Tantalus s highly tuned commitment to environmental sustainability to great advantage Rather than sterilizing the landscape with chemicals and pesticides he wants the notoriously fickle grape to soak up the terroir I want to see lots of earth worms I want my grapes covered in spiders and earwigs and all sorts of stuff like that a healthy ecosystem rather than a barren wasteland that just grows grapes MACLEAN S WINE IN CANADA Ken MacQueen Search Search for Categories News Archives October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 June 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 January 2014 November 2013 October 2013 August 2013 July 2013 June 2013 May 2013 March 2013 February 2013 January 2013 December 2012 November 2012 October 2012 September 2012 August 2012 June 2012 May 2012 March 2012 November 2011 August 2011 March 2011 February 2011 December 2010 November 2010 July 2010 June 2010 May 2010 December 2009 November 2009 September 2009 August 2009 December 2008 November 2008 August 2008 July 2008 June 2008 February 2008 October 2007 August 2007 July 2007

  • 93 Points for 2011 Old Vines Riesling from James Cluer, MW | Tantalus
    2011 Old Vines Riesling is one of my favorites and when pushed I d rate it 93 points I love the apple citrus and nectarine aromatics that leap out of the glass underpinned by a steely mineral note There is some gorgeous fruit ripeness counter balancing the crisp acidity on the palate with more pear apple and lemon flavours It s bracing tight focused and long and it s lip smacking good Drink it now with some scallops or BC salmon or age it for another 5 years and let the complexity unravel Tantalus Riesling is the bomb See the remainder of James coverage on Tantalus on his website A Fine Vintage Wine Blog Search Search for Categories News Archives October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 June 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 January 2014 November 2013 October 2013 August 2013 July 2013 June 2013 May 2013 March 2013 February 2013 January 2013 December 2012 November 2012 October 2012 September 2012 August 2012 June 2012 May 2012 March 2012 November 2011 August 2011 March 2011 February 2011 December 2010 November 2010 July 2010 June 2010 May 2010 December 2009 November 2009 September 2009 August 2009 December 2008 November 2008
