Quails' Gate Estate Winery Gewurztraminer 2012
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Quails' Gate Estate Winery Gewurztraminer 2012 Wine Review
Just perfect! Aromas and flavours of light baking spices, white flowers and lychee. Medium-bodied and packed with flavour. Perfect for Asian fare and medium curries. 4.6/5 Gewurztraminer food pairings: camembert, mushroom, salami and praga ham thin crust pizza.

Had the pleasure of Wine Tasting at the Quails Gate Winery In Kelowna, BC with the very excellent Brian (the Sommelier) as our host. We loved this crisp, white fruity Gewürztraminer. Naturally we couldn't leave the winery without a few bottles of this delicious BC wine. I am going to pair this with my BBQ turkey burgers or my clear fish soup on a day when I am not in the mood for a complicated meal. Please go to my blog www.cookinguncovered.blogspot.com for these recipes and more.
|Our Gewürztraminer is a valley blend sourced from vineyards on the Mount Boucherie Bench, and in North, Central and South Kelowna. The clay and limestone soils, reminiscent of those in Alsace, give the wine a soft mineral character adding depth and body. The grapes were handpicked in early October and whole bunch pressed prior to cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks to highlight the intense varietal characteristics of the wine. Some residual sweetness is retained to add texture and balance to the wine’s natural acidity. Careful cellaring of up to 5 years will be rewarded. Source: Winery|
