A lovely, floral, spicy white wine with notes of lychee and rose petal. Medium-bodied and luscious with some sweetness that's nicely balanced with acidity. Try with curried dishes and medium spices.

Radha rated this wine as 93/100
The Quarry road vineyard is proving to be a great site for gew├╝rztraminer, as the characteristic minerality adds a wonderful dimension to the gewurz. The nose teases with exotic notes of ripe citrus, lychee, lilac and ginger. The palate is equally expressive, showing delicious fruit, balancing acidity, and the minerality of the vineyard. It also has the characteristic gew├╝rztraminer spiciness that is pleasantly evident throughout the tasting experience, and lingers during the finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
