Natalie's Score: 87/100

Soft and pretty with lovely white floral and white peach aromas and flavours. According the winery, Silver Bay is where the vineyard meets the beach: the Niagara's sandy shoreline separates the waters to the south, east and north. And adds romantically, that the gentle breeze flickers through the leaves of the silver oak trees lining the beach. Ah, live the life; drink their wine ;) This works as a refreshing aperitif or companion to seafood and shellfish.

Reviews and Ratings

Chris Coughlin - WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Light nose, aromas of citrus, stone fruit and apple. Gewurztraminer in the blend gives a bit of spice and some extra mouth feel, and it's just fun to say 'Gewurztraminer'.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Tart lime, loads of white flower and a sparkling minerality. Flavour is very bright... I love this! Intense green apple. Pair with seafood... Raw oysters or seared scallops.
Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Silver Bay Riesling Gewurztraminer 2013 features some nice aromas of apple, peach and floral. Nice and easy on the palate. (86/100) Tasted July 14, 2014
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This is a blend that is very soft on the palate given its acidity. There is some minerality and aromas of red apple, yellow apple, and a touch of the Riesling petrol and Gewürztraminer spiciness, but very much in the background.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

With an assemblage of Gewurztraminer and Riesling, I thought the nose would be a bomb of rose and petrolum aromas, but it was a very subtle nose. Nice acidity too with residual sugar (off-dry). It is a nice wine to drink with grilled salmon.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Clear, pale lemon in the glass. Some pleasing aromas of apple, apricot, lemon, honeycomb with a hint of Gewurztraminer's floral bouquet. The wine is off-dry with tart acidity and flavours of green apple,peach, grapefruit pith, seeds,rubber, clove.
The length is short with a slight bitter finish.
This wine definitely needs food. Asian perhaps to pair with the off-dry sweetness or seafood/shellfish.
Good bargain wine.
