2016 Meyer Family Gewurztraminer

VARIETAL: Gewurztraminer

REGION: Okanagan Falls, British Columbia

COUNTRY: Canada

VINTAGE: 2016

ALCOHOL: 13.0%

BOTTLE SIZE: 750 mL

The wine was crafted from a southwest-facing heritage block of vines planted on our estate McLean Creek Road Vineyard in 1994 with cuttings hailing from Germany. The vineyard is comprised of alluvial and glacial deposits making up a mix of gravel and sandy loam and is well-suited to this variety, allowing us to craft a beautifully aromatic, food-friendly Gewürztraminer.

WINEMAKER: Chris Carson

REVIEWS: 

This wine delivers lychee and spice on the palate. The texture is juicy and the wine is balanced to finish dry. - John Schreiner April 2017

"A pleasant 13 percent alcohol sets the stage for this southwest-facing heritage block of gewürztraminer vines planted on the estate McLean Creek Road Vineyard 23 years ago. Gravelly sandy loam regulates the vines and the flavours, giving this wine an aromatic aura that doesn’t obliterate its textures and the flavours on the palate. Light litchi, lees, bits of orange with a hint of spice mark what is a tasty ready-to-drink white. Sushi anyone?" - Gismondi on Wine - Anthony Gismondi (Jun 2017)
