Natalie's Score: 92/100

A lovely dessert wine with aromas of baking spice, lychee and lilies. This is a late harvest wine, not an icewine (Featherstone doesn't produce icewine) and so it has attractive sweetness but is not cloying. Pair with gingerbread men (and women).

Gewürztraminer food pairings: mild curries, pad Thai, sushi, sashimi.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Made similarly to Icewine, but these grapes were hand-harvested at -6°C rather than the -8°C required for Icewine. The result is a sweet wine with less sugar and viscosity than Icewine, though still possessing all of the character concentration associated with it. A tropical fruit basket of mango, lychee, and peach with rose petals dancing around in the background. A strong line of acidity cuts the sweetness, refreshes the palate, and makes for a very food-friendly wine. No doubt a fine accompaniment for a pineapple lemon meringue pie or peach cobbler, but it would be equally wonderful before dinner with hard cheeses and spicy charcuterie.
Featherstone Select Late Harvest 2016 Gewürztraminer from the Niagara Peninsula wine region is indeed a late-harvest Gewürztraminer with wine grapes picked as late as just prior to Christmas. The 2016 harvest was incredible and everything the winery could hope for. The nose is ripe apricots, meadow honey and lemon curd with more of the same sweet ripe fruit on the palate and matched by a vibrant acidity. Yummy! - Community Wine Reviews
