Reviews and Ratings

The fruit for the 2008 Gewurztraminer was harvested from vineyards in both Kelowna and Kaleden at an average of 21 Brix. The juice was left in contact with the skins for an extended period of time in order to enhance varietal qualities. The juice was then cool fermented in stainless steel tanks and finished in an off-dry style.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

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.
