Natalie's Score: 89/100

Very pretty! A profusion of rose petals, baking spice and lychee aromas. Mouth-watering and vibrant.

Gewurztraminer food pairings: spiced red lentil soup, Asian dishes, mild curries.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Harvested from vineyards in Central and South East Kelowna the clay and limestone soils, reminiscent of those in Alsace, give the wine a soft mineral character adding depth and body. The grapes are handpicked and whole bunch pressed prior to cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was stopped with some residual sweetness to add texture and balance to the wine’s perky acidity. High toned spice and fruit will develop in the bottle over the next 3 years and careful cellaring of 2–5 years will be rewarded.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
