ABOUT THE WINE
Our 2015 Gewürztraminer was harvested from two vineyard sites, Hidden Terrace Vineyard and Kreiger Vineyard in the Okanagan Valley. The grapes were whole cluster pressed, cool fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the character and the freshness of the fruit.
The Red Rooster’s ideal flock would always include a pretty Gewürztraminer. Wonderful aromas of rose petal, tropical fruit, lychee nut, spice and marzipan rise from the glass. This medium-bodied wine is just off-dry with juicy flavours of tropical fruit, melon and pear. The lingering finish of lychee nut, exotic spice and melon makes for a perfect food companion. Drink while young and fresh.p>
Serve with lightly spiced and savoury foods such as Tandoori chicken; Cajun spiced fish; spiced crab cakes; Pad Thai; vegetable stir-fries (include ginger, hoisin and oyster sauces); take-out Chinese food; ham and grainy mustard Panini; baked ham; spiced sausage with sauerkraut on crusty buns; vegetable samosas with mango chutney; Muenster cheese and water crackers.p>
