Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Nov 21, 2013: Blind tasting NCSG Vintages pre-release. Pale straw, floral, pear, apricot, citrus, spicy and cotton candy nose. Orchard and citrus fruit and spicy on the palate with a fennel note on a medium warm finish.
Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Candied lemon, tangerine, orange blossom, lychee, and flint on the nose. Medium weight, refreshing tangerine and stone fruit on the palate.
Southern Okanagan produces great aromatic whites (amongst many other styles) and this is a great example here.
Tinhorn Creek pride themselves on conscientious sustainability, from how they treat water to how they treat their people. Obviously they also know how to treat their grapes - this Gewürz is bursting with healthy doses of ripe citrus, orchard blossoms, botanicals and grated ginger.
