Natalie's Score: 93/100

The ethereal essence of gewurztraminer with exotic aromas of violets and rose petals and ripe Asian pear and lychee fruit. Rich, luscious texture that's perfectly balanced. Great mouth-watering juiciness for a variety of dishes. The vines for this wine were grown in limstone soil, then the grapes were hand-harvested. It's also both organic and biodynamically farmed. The effort and care shows in the superb craftsmanship.

Gewurztraminer food pairings: Asian dishes, light to medium curries, Chinese, Thai, and Indian food will work with the great combination of flavours, spiciness, and complimenting sweet notes in the wine. Also great with vegetarian fare, white fish, chicken, and pork dishes.

Our 2010 Quarry Road Gewurztraminer has an expressive nose of ginger, lychee and lilac. The palate is bursting with with intense spicy, fruity and floral notes, rounded out by evident minerality. The finish is classic Gew├╝rztraminer, long and wonderfully spicy!

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.
