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: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7. Tawse Quarry Road Gewurztraminer 2010 Wine Review
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. This Tawse Quarry Road Gewurztraminer 2010 was reviewed by January 3, 2012 Natalie MacLean
