See Ya Later Ranch 2013 Gewurztraminer - 87pts
Availability: Available at BCLDB and VQA stores. Winery site here
Date Tasted: April 10th, 2014
Tasting Notes: Part of Constellation Brands' large family of BC wineries, See Ya Later Ranch has done a good job remaining the least 'corporate' feeling of their many Okanagan properties, producing a wide range of approachable, well-made, single-varietal wines and blends. Their Gewurztraminer fits the mould with its playful nose and ripe, juicy, off-dry palate, balanced nicely with crab apple acidity. Lychee and white peach aromas and flavours dominate while apple cider and mineral notes add complexity.
Most vintages feature 10-15% Ehrenfelser blended in for added drama and tangyness. Enjoy this wine in the year it was produced or within 1-2 years afterwards. A fine summer sipper and a great match for popcorn. Drink now-2015.
