Reserve Gewurztraminer 2014
ABOUT THE WINE
Hand-picked from Kreiger, Hidden Terrace and Starz Vineyards in the Okanagan Valley. Our Gewurztraminer Reserve was whole cluster pressed to extract clean, pure aromas and flavours, and cool fermented in stainless steel.
Limited production of 107 cases.
This Queen hen really knows how to stand out in the flock, with gorgeous aromas of lychee nut, rose water, Bartlett pear, mandarin and tropical fruit. This dry, slightly rich Gewurztraminer has a round almost oily mouth-feel with fleshy fruit flavours of tropical fruit and lychee. Notes of spice, orange and peach linger on the finish. Drink while young and fresh.
Lovely wine for afternoon sipping or serve with spice-rubbed pork tenderloin and roasted baby carrots; clove studded baked ham with spiced apple sauce; caramelized onion and Gruyere tarts; Asian bean and vegetable salad; a cheese board with Bergeron "Le Coureur des bois" (Gouda with cumin seeds) from Quebec and Munster, both with water crackers.
