Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $19.90

Date Tasted: June 21st, 2014

Tasting Notes: A lean and minerally Gewurztraminer that opens with a medium intense nose of gooseberry, slate, apple and light lychee fruit aromas. Texture is the focal point of the palate where tangy citrus fruit and minerals create a effervescent mouth feel. Ripe apple and pear flavours add wanted juiciness and help balance the austere elements. Enjoy this wine in its youth with cheese fondue. Drink now-2015.
