White Wine

Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery Gewurztraminer 2016, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia V.Q.A., Canada: More than anything, it's the gorgeous texture of this wine that lasts in your mind: unctuous, voluptuous, mouth-coating. This rich and full-bodied BC white wine made from Gewurztraminer grapes offers lovely aromas of rose petals, baking spices and lychees. Pair with mild to medium curries. Drink: 2016 - 2020 14.2% XD 750 mL $15.99 Score: 91/100. December 2017. Best Value White Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
