Gewürztraminer icewine is just as interesting as it sounds. It is puzzling it isn't chosen more often as an obvious candidate for tasty icewine in Ontario and British Columbia.
It has a natural spiced quality that balances the ultra fruity quality icewine tends to embody.
This Gewürz embodies that spice quality perfectly. Along with a compellingly deep, lustrous gold colour, it has a strong pungent aroma of roses, chai tea, and smoked honey.
High alchohol for an icewine (12.4%), but Gewürz tends to do that - no matter the style of wine it is used for.
The flavours are very tropical - mango, yellow plum, dried pineapple. It retains a lot of the honey so apparent on the nose. There's a long finish with some great orange marmalade notes. Absolutely great finish!
Ann Sperling's ventures in Ontario (Southbrook), B.C. (Sperling), and Argentina (Versado) are all carefully managed by her and her team and the quality speaks for itself.
She is somewhat of an icon in Canadian wine.
Gewürztraminer icewine is always something special, but this one is pretty excellent. Pair it with rogan josh and papadams.

The intense floral, tropical fruit and spice aromas beg for a taste. Notes are complex, deeply concentrated and complex. Prominent flavours include stewed mango, honey, ginger syrup, allspice and beeswax. Enjoy this rich succulent and flavourful BC Icewine with winter spice cakes.

An Icewine with elegance. Sperling has done it again. Beautiful, smooth, deep gold and brilliant. Declared 12.4% ABV. The varietal shows a hint of spiciness, ripe stone fruit with light honey and citrus peel. Medium full bodied, long finish with persistence of marmelade. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 91/100.

Pretty floral and peach aromatics, with yummy satiny palate giving ripe peach marmalade, hint of maraschino cherry, sweet spice and floral notes.

This ain't your ordinary gewurztraminer! Intense wildflower honey, peach jam, dried apricot and marmalade fill the palate, with hints of the telltale gewurz lychee on the finish. Yum! Chilled, this would be amazing with foie gras served with a peach or apricot compote.

Luscious dried apricot and peach with honey and orange blossom. Full-bodied with a gorgeous orange-apricot finish. Tasted January 15, 2017.

Beautiful amber colour. Tastes filled with honey and apricot. Great with a peach-based dessert.

|What a beautiful gold, light-amber colour on this Gewurztraminer Ice Wine from British Columbia. The wine is a rich dessert in itself. - Community Wine Reviews|
