Gewürztraminer, 2020

Shipped and sold by Redstone Winery

2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13.5% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 90 pts

THE NOTES: On the nose of this fragrant Gewürztraminer, bursting with lychee and pink grapefruit, as well as pretty tree floral notes. On the palate, enticing notes of marmalade and candied ginger and refreshing acidity balance the residual sweetness and make this aromatic wine extremely food-friendly.

THE PAIRINGS: With its floral notes and hint of sweetness, Gewürztraminer is the perfect choice with spicy dishes, especially Asian and Thai cuisine. It pairs beautifully with miso-glazed pork belly, coconut shrimp, ginger-glazed salmon or sweet-chili chicken stir-fry. It’s incredible texture also makes it an excellent accompaniment full-bodied savoury dishes.

THE CELLARING: Drink now to 2024
