A rich, viscous, full-bodied Niagara Gewurztraminer with aromas of lychee, rose petal and peach. Alcohol is 14.9% but it's balanced and doesn't taste warm. Perfect for medium curries and spices.

Reviews and Ratings

Pam Hatton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Pale straw colour lends to classic Niagara terroir nose. Restrained rose petals, grapefruit and apricot. Rich and viscous on the palate with flavours of peach, grapefruit and stone fruit. Long full finish.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lime, rosewater, lychee and peaches. Rounded and ripe on the palate, with rich, luscious fruit notes, and hints of warm spice. Surprisingly dry on the palate. Enjoy with mildly spiced curry or pad thai.
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep lemon, dry, full bodied wine. Pronounced aroma of spice, rose, lemon, lime and peach. The wine is very warming in the mouth; spice is the predominant taste along with saline and a hint of rose. This wine would be best with food; perhaps a rich spiced dish to complement the flavours of the wine.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour with aromas of apricot, lychee and honey suckle. It is medium bodied with mouth watering acidity and has flavours of white grapefruit and stone fruit. While it has sweet aromas the wine is dry. This will pair well with soft cheeses, green salads and seafood. Tasted on November 17, 2019.
