A floral, zesty Niagara Gewurztraminer with attractive aromas of white peach, baking spice and lychee on the palate. Very Alsatian in style and elegance. Finishes with rosewater notes. Pair with Asian dishes.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
This is a gorgeous Gewürztraminer! Fantastic aromatics and beautiful on the palate. Bursting with flavours of lychee fruit, ripe peach, rose water, orange blossom and a hint of ginger root. Balanced high acidity, juicy fruit, integrating alcohol. Complex, well structured, medium bodied and very approachable for those who love Gewürztraminer typicity. Paired well with a an aromatic Thai stir fry over steamed fragrant jasmine rice. Tasted 2015 Reserve in July 2017. 93 points. BespokeTastings

Golden in colour with aromas of peach, lychee, rose and pear. Medium bodied with nice acidity and flavours of white pepper, peach and lychee. It will pair with chicken or mild curry dishes. Tasted on March 11, 2018.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lovely pale golden-yellow colour. Nose is dusty floral/rose with honey and honeysuckle. Palate is full of pear, honey, citrus, baking spice flavours. Focused acidity with an oily-creamy mouthfeel and a nutty finish. Pair with butter chicken.
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Rich golden hue in the glass, with aromas of honeysuckle and lychee fruit ant a hit of zesty citrus mid-palate. Wonderful with spicy asian dishes.
Tasted May 2017.
|Luc Delorme rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
The nose is undoubtedly Gewurz with rose, lychee and peach. Mouth-watering on the palate, the tropical fruit persists through to the smooth finish. The acidity balances the sweetness without being overly bracing. Pretty much a by-the-book Gewurztraminer; and that’s not a bad thing at all.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Not a bad effort, featuring pears, lychee, apple and orange blossom. A little short on the finish but I'd serve a bottle or two on the cottage dock. 87 Points.
