Very pretty peach blossom and honey florals on the nose of this light-bodied, off-dry Prince Edward County white wine blend of Riesling and Gewurtraminer. Perfect as an aperitif or pair with fresh seafood.

Riesling Gewurztraminer food pairings: spicy Thai dishes and curries.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a great-value gewürz-riesling from Prince Edward County. Its creamy texture and flavours of lychee, pear, honey and pink grapefruit make it the perfect pairing for spicy Asian foods or anything with a hint of sweetness to match its own. Yum!
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Such a pretty wine! The nose is bursting with aromas of lychee, peaches, honeysuckle and orange blossom. Light-medium body with a long, lychee and stone fruit finish. This wine would pair well with spicy shellfish. Tasted January 15, 2017.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour with aromas of peach, lychee, lemon, pear and honeysuckle with the flavours of lemon, peach and lychee following through on the palate. It is medium bodied and well balanced. It will pair well with chicken, seafood or Asian dishes. A great value for the price.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas of yellow apple, lemon, honey, and a touch of petrol. Medium acidity and a slightly off-dry taste that follows the aromas quite well. Medium yellow apple finish.

I paired this with both a slightly spicy chicken soup and a bowl of mixed berries to great results.
Luscious and seductive. Aromas of passion fruit and intense tropical spice; glamour with no makeup.
