JoieFarm 2012 "En Famille" Reserve Gewurztraminer (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Sold out at the winery but still available at VQA stores
Cost: $27.90 (including taxes)
Date Tasted: November 17th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A one-of-a-kind. The only true Reserve Gewurztraminer produced in BC today with unparalleled intensity and unctuousness. Classic lychee, raw honey and floral characters, dialled-up to '11', on the uber crowd-pleasing, tropical fruit-infused nose and on the lip-smacking, off-dry, juicy palate where generous citrus acidity keeps the long, spicy finish clean and balanced.
At three years of age, the maturation process has already advanced nicely. Ready to be devoured now, though, may hold for further development over the next 2-3 years. Drink now-2018.
