Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards Interloper Gewurztraminer 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaUnmistakably gewürztraminer, this super ripe, round and fleshy white is full of rose petals, peach and melon to a gingersnap finish. A quarter was fermented in neutral oak, and all spent four months on the lees in stainless, upping gew's generosity further - almost too far. A bitter twist on the finish helps rein this in, but I hope for more acid on this Alsatian-style white in the future.Tasted: 09 February 2017Tasted by: Prices:
