Our 2008 Gewürztraminer is slightly drier than previous vintages, but just as mouth filling, with classic peach, melon, lychee, and grapefruit rind flavours. The fragrant herbal aroma is pure South Okanagan, powerfully evoking the sun drenched sagebrush hillsides of the Golden Mile Bench where the grapes are grown.
Our Gewürztraminer is located above the winery against the mountain on the Golden Mile Bench and benefits from heat radiating off the mountain in the evenings after the sun goes down. The 2008 Gewürztraminer was entirely handpicked over two days in September. Each lot was crushed and fermented separately at a cool temperature to allow the wine to retain its natural fruit forward characteristics. After fermentation the lots were blended together to create a well balanced wine.
