Tinhorn Creek Vineyards 2013 Gewurztraminer (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from winery here, BCLDB and VQA stores
Cost: $16.99
Alcohol: 13.3%
Date Tasted: June 16th, 2014

Tasting Notes: An incredibly consistent Gewurztraminer, year-in, year-out, which, for 2013, sees the wine's profile edge slightly 'plumper' than the 2012 edition, yet remains, true to its stonefruit roots. Simulates the 
raw acidity and delicate sweetness of biting into a freshly picked peach down to the pit. A touch 'hot' on the finish, though, mostly obscured by the plentiful spice and residual citrus twang. 

This is a wine for long Summer nights and/or spicy Asian food. Drink now-2014.
