Pale straw in colour, floral and fruity aromas of citrus, lychee, rose petal. On the palate is a mix of peach, granny smith apple, lychee, ginger, spice, citrus peel and grapefruit. Produced in an off-dry style, the well balanced acidity contributes to the clean, fresh finish.

Growing Conditions

100% of the grapes used for making the 2012 Gewürztraminer range from 7 to 33 years old, are self-rooted and come from our Reece, Elliott, and Smith Creek Road vineyards. We currently have 60 acres of vineyards in West Kelowna, all within 10 kilometers of our winery. Gewürtz is German for “spice," which is why this wine is often considered the best match for spicy dishes. Traminer, as history explains, is a green-skinned grape that takes its name from the village of Tramin (Termeno), located in the north eastern region of Alto Adige/South Tyrol, the German-speaking area in northern Italy.

Food Pairing

This wine is light-medium bodied and is considered "spicy" by nature and name. The wine’s sweetness coats the inside of your mouth helping to tame the spiciness of the food. It pairs well with exotic fruit and cheeses, bacon and pineapple pizza, quiche Lorraine, chicken, beef and lamb curries, baked ham, Chinese, Vietnamese and Asian flavoured dishes.
