Calliope Wines 2014 Gewurztraminer (Southern Okanagan Valley) BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $13.99 + taxes
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: December 11th, 2015

Tasting Notes: A well-balanced, middle-of-the-road Gewurztraminer that isn't too lean or too 'gooey' on the lightly, off-dry palate. Opens with a ripe, juicy nose of sticky orchard fruit and mild spice aromas with additional citrus peel and mineral notes. Palate follows with some texture and decent intensity of ripe, nectarines and apricots contrasted by steely-lemon/lime flavours. Finish is a bit short, but nothing tastes out-of-place.
 Drink now-2016.
