This wine is a dedicated Estate Gewürztraminer that we have bottled from the JoieFarm vineyard located on the Naramata Bench. It is a low-yielding vineyard that has been farmed sustainably with meticulous viticultural timing and canopy work to achieve mouthwatering natural balance and intense aromatics in this notoriously difficult variety to balance. Exotically flavoured, unctuous Alsatian Grand Cru Gewürztraminers are the stylistic inspiration for this wine.
Tasting Notes and Pairing Suggestions
Alluring aromas of lychee and spicy fresh rose petals carry through to intense and exotic flavours of orange blossom water, kumquat, and quince. A wonderful natural acidity cleans up the unctuous texture for an unexpectedly fresh finish. Enjoy as an apéritif with turkey, rich patés and sausages, roasted root vegetables and rich aromatic Asian curries.
