Red Rooster produces a beautiful rendition of gewurztraminer with lovely spice notes, lychee and roase petal, but never over-the-top. Perfect for Asian dishes and curries. This is a BC VQA wine.

Gewürztraminer food pairings: spicy pork, pho noodles.

Really like this wine but found that I had a reaction to it that left me stuffed up next day
Dale Schierbeck rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

One sip, and you’re caught in a flavourful and syrupy bouquet of white fruit: pear and lychee. And, if fruit-forward isn’t enough, well, it ends with a splash of citrus: yes, as the label reads, you will certainly taste a fully-ripe and sweet grapefruit at the end. Produced on the southern tip of Okanagan Lake between Penticton and Naramata, the wine even pulls in a bit of that same jack pine that circles the Okanagan Valley. With a very floral bouquet, it is almost like pressing your face into a spring pear orchard. Ahh … that takes me back.

With decent acidity, despite the off-dry taste, and an almost peppery finish, each sip cleans the palette and makes this a very versatile wine that pairs well with everything from poultry to fruit-forward dishes – even buttery sweet dishes with some spice. Indeed, it paired phenomenally with my White Chile and even better with a spinach salad topped mango and strawberries and persimmon vinaigrette.
Winner of a Silver Medal at the 2013 Pacific Rim Wine Competition. Candied citrus notes mingle with potpourri, white rose, white pepper and a touch of lychee. Very juicy, soft and generous. Excellent fruit throughout. Spice note emerges on the finish. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews Nov. 2013

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.
