Chateau Des Charmes 2008 St. David's Bench Vineyard Gewurztraminer - 89pts
Availability: Available direct from the winery here and at select LCBO Vintages stores
Production: 540 cases produced, 56 cases released to Vintages
Date Tasted: July 23rd, 2011
Tasting Notes: An excellent, focused, single-vineyard Gewurztraminer offering classic peach, apricot and lychee fruit characters with a juicy, full-bodied and expressive mouth feel. With now 3 years of age, look for this "Goo" to stand-out from current releases with sultry, maturing aromas and flavours of cashew nuts, stewed pears and fruitcake spice. Mineral notes compliment the feminine elements of this wine and contrast the residual sugar nicely. The finish is very long and balanced with lingering lemon-lime tartness. Enjoy this wine on its own or with your favourite sushi. Drink 2011-2013.
