Intrigue Wines 2011 Gewurztraminer - 84pts

Intrigue Wines 2011 Gewurztraminer (Lake Country) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $16.90
Alcohol: 14.2%
Production: 210 cases
Date Tasted: July 31st, 2012

Tasting Notes: An off-dry, medium-plus bodied Gewurztraminer from Lake Country producer Intrigue which opens with a muted nose of violets, pink lady apples and canned sweet bamboo shoots. Good, citrus acidity and orchard fruit follows on the palate with lingering light spice and pink grapefruit tang but an out-of-place bitterness leaves your mouth a little confused. A pairing with spicy Asian food will help mask the aftertaste, but there are many similarly priced wines available in BC that won't require the restricted serving parameters. Drink 2012-2013.
