Red Rooster Winery is located above Okanagan Lake on the Naramata Bench, just north of Penticton. This area is known for its southwestern exposure and unique microclimate. And why a rooster? Because the winery's founders kept Rodiseland Reds in Switzerland; because roosters are good luck symbols in many cultures; and because roosters have a long association with wine (for example, the rooster is the symbol of the Chianti region of Italy). Picked in early October, this Gewurztraminer Reserve was whole cluster pressed to extract aroma and flavor components and cool fermented in stainless steel. Highly aromatic wine with notes of lychee, banana and pink grapefruit. Medium-bodied, off-dry wine. Closed with a screwcap.
Gewurztraminer Reserve food pairings: Tandoori chicken, curried mango rice, grilled salmon, Thai-steamed mussels.
