Gewürztraminer

This is one of our winery’s most popular wines and for very good reason. It offers tremendous value for the price and is made in an aromatic, fruity, easy drinking style. Our Gewürztraminer is a valley blend sourced from vineyards here on the property along with fruit from our vineyards in South East Kelowna.

Tasting & Pairing

The 2015 Gewürztraminer is showing itself as a true aromatic variety. Aromas of exotic spices, lychee and guava leap out of the glass. This off-dry wine is complimented by flavours of ginger, guava and other high tone tropical fruits. Gewürztraminer’s natural pairing is any Asian cuisine where there is a presence of spice and fresh Asian herbs. Alternatively, arctic char, Caesar salad or grilled chicken would all be suitable accompaniments.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand harvested throughout October and cold fermented in stainless steel tank to highlight the intense varietal characteristics of the wine. Some residual sweetness is retained to add texture and balance to the wine’s natural acidity. Under proper conditions, this wine can be aged for 5 years.
