Thornhaven Estates Winery 2009 Gewurztraminer - 88pts

Thornhaven Estates Winery 2009 Gewurztraminer (Summerland) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $17.99
Alcohol: 14%
Date Tasted: May 17th, 2011

Tasting Notes: The aromas of a ripe fruit salad explode on the intense nose of this Gewurztraminer from Summerland. The off-dry palate follows with concentrated flavours of lychee, melons and a touch of citrus. Very full and oily in the mouth but appropriate levels of acidity help to add balance resulting in a bold expression of the Alsatian varietal. Seekers of subtle, dry "Goo" need not apply. Drink 2011-2012.
