A blend of Gewurztraminer from our Naramata Bench Vineyard, and nearby Wheeler Vineyard, all hand picked : Sept. 25 and Oct. 7th. Fermented quite dry at cool temperature to retain aromas of pineapple, grapefruit & lychee. Tropical fruit on the pallate with a touch of spice.
Availability: April 1, 2018 release
Sweetness: Off-Dry – fruity (1)
Awards: 92 POINTS – Frequently a Silver Medallist at the All Canadian Wine Championships.
“This is a full-flavoured Alsace style fermented dry, and it is all the more interesting for that, especially for those of us who find off-dry Gewurztraminer somewhat boring. This wine has aromas and flavours of spice, lychee and grapefruit, with a lingering finish.”
