Ravine Gewurztraminer 2017
Our 2017 Gewürztraminer was picked from the Niagara Lakeshore sub- appellation. Being so close to the lake results in moderated temperatures. In the heat of the summer the lake keeps the cool breezes flowing and then in winter circulates warm air above it.
This wine is a bright pale straw colour. It has vibrant aromas of apricot, ripe quince and fresh cut roses. It is an off-dry style wine meaning it has a touch of sweetness but not too much. It is quite intensely flavoured in the mouth. It has a long lasting finish that tastes like lychee.
This is an intensely flavoured wine so it needs food that has intensity of flavour. Because of its slight sweetness it can tame the heat of Thai or Indian chilis.
