Lake Breeze Vineyards 2008 Gewurztraminer - 91pts

Lake Breeze Vineyards 2008 Gewurztraminer (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery. VQA Stores

Cost: $18 (Direct from winery) $22 (Private wine stores)

Date Tasted: September 2nd, 2009

Tasted Notes: A nicely balanced Gerwurztraminer from Naramata Bench producer Lake Breeze Vineyards with a very long finish. Perfect acidity compliments the sweetness of the citrus fruit aromas and flavours despite the lack of any residual sugar.
I enjoyed this Gerwurz at lunch at the winery's wonderful patio restaurant. It was the white wine suggestion for my menu selection, "chicken sandwich with chipotle aioli, Mediterranean salsa, feta cheese & fresh mint", and it paired very nicely. If you are planning a wine tasting trip to the Naramata Bench and haven't had lunch at the Lake Breeze patio make sure you schedule a visit. You won't be disappointed.
