Natalie's Score: 88/100

A lovely, light, floral BC Gewurztraminer with aromas of lychee, rose petal and baking spices. Medium-bodied and delicious. The 2015 vintage of the Gray Monk Gewürztraminer has a lovely pale golden hue in the glass. Finishes with Asian pear, lychee and roses. Perfect for Asian dishes, curries and spicy dishes.

Gewürztraminer food pairings: fried herb-crusted and panko trout, chickpea lentil pea and potato curry, pizza with pork sausage.

Reviews and Ratings

This is a classic and well-known Gewürztraminer from British Columbia's Lake Country wine region. The 2015 vintage is full on lychee, rose petals, ginger and soft citrus on the palate. Well-balanced and well loved, Winemaker George Heiss Jr. and Roger Wong, bring out the best in this wine. In 1998 the Heiss family was honoured with the Founder Award from the Okanagan Wine Festival Society. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

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.
