Tasting Notes: Enjoy a classic, floral and lychee fruit infused nose on this Cowichan Valley-grown Gewurztraminer from Averill Creek with peach, steel, mandarin candy and light spice aromas supporting. The palate opens with upfront, plump pear and honeydew flavours followed by lean, mineral and citrus characters which lead to a rather dry finish thanks to its heightened acidity. A touch more residual sugar would be more 'typical' for the variety but perhaps not as unique - a pleasantly dry alternative to the often, 'sticky' Gewurztraminers on the market. Drink 2015-2016.
