Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of pineapple, lychee, and slight touch of white pepper. The taste is a slightly spicy pineapple and melon.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A brilliant pale straw Gewurztraminer reserve from 2014 vintage. Typicity in aromatics and palate with canned lychee fruit, spice, white pepper. Pair this value wine with Red or green Thai curry or stir fried beef and broccoli with sliced ginger. @jonsteeves rated 89/100 - tasted May 2016
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An excellent value Ontario Gewurtztraminer with aromas of honey suckle, apricot, pear and lychee. Apricot, pear and white pepper flavours come through on the palate. It will pair nicely with spicey dishes or Asian cuisine.
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

You don't see a lot of gewurztraminer coming out of Ontario, but this is a great one to keep in your back pocket, especially at the price point. Stonefruit, lychee, red apple, and a bit of lemon to balance it out. Will buy again the next time I make thai food!
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromatic and floral with notes of lychee, melon and lemon. Medium-bodied. Serve chilled with spicy Asian dishes.
Nicole Lewis reviewed this wine as follows:

Niagara, reserve and white - usually means delectable! This Gewurtztraminer smells like rose petals and lanolin skin cream. Medium to full-bodied on the palate and verging on off-dry, yet still possessing some cleansing acidity. It replays subtle dry rose petals, some lychee and Meyer lemon on the palate.
