|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A pale gold fortified wine with aromatics and palate of rose water, orange blossom, Asian pear and a hint of candied ginger root. Juicy and mouthwatering acidity. Tasted Dec 2016 - rated 88/100.

The View Winery boasts spectacular views of Kelowna and Okanagan Lake. Sandy loam soils combined with long hot summer days and cool evening breezes from the lake are perfect conditions for The View’s signature fresh, fruity, aromatic wines. Originally built by Great Granddad Ward in 1922, the building in which we craft and cellar our wines was once the original Ward’s Apple Packinghouse and is the last from its era in the Okanagan. For five generations our family has supported a commitment to tradition, authenticity and excellence. Our alluring wines point to the future and celebrate the past.
Gewürztraminer 90% Riesling 10%, fortified grape spirits are added
Well Heeled is a fortified “Sticky” made from a blend of Riesling and Gewurztraminer grapes picked late in the 2015 harvest. Notes of fresh apricot, raisin and spice on the nose and palate make this a succulent and deliciously rich dessert wine. Enjoy with anything naughty or nice!
