White Wine

Fielding Gewürztraminer 2012, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: White pepper and white grapefruit on the nose, slight sweetness of fleshy peach on the palate then finishes with a floral profusion. Lovely. Medium-bodied. Perfect for Asian dishes. The grapes for this wine were cold soaked before pressing to extract as much flavour as possible.
