2018 Gewürztraminer

2018 Gewürztraminer

At home in Alsace, this aromatic variety has found a new home on Vancouver Island. It is dry, medium bodied and slick on the palate with notes of peach, nectarine, ginger and hallmark lighthearted floral notes. Aromatic and flamboyant, this exotic and floral wine is textured and rich with a clean and pleasing finish. The fruit is from a single block from our friends at Saison Vineyard in North Cowichan. Made in very small quantities this wine is only available online and in our wine shop.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Due to our high latitude and proximity to the moderating influence of the Salish sea, Gewürztraminer from Vancouver Island is certainly a unique expression. It is able to maintain its freshness and bright mid palate without getting cloying or syrupy while developing ripe exotic fruit on the nose and palate. Aromas on the nose of yellow apple, peach blossom and lychee prelude crisp flavours of, grapefruit, ginger and exotic fruit. The finish is dry and full of luscious minerality.
Vineyard Notes
With southern exposure and a free draining soil type we love the breadth and ripeness of flavours achieved from Saison Vineyard fruit.
Food Pairing Notes
The gentle weight and exotic fruit notes open the door to intriguing pairings. From coconut curry to terrine this wine can find a flair with a wide array of foods. Try it with smoked oily fish like sturgeon!
