JoieFarm En Famille Reserve Gewurztraminer 2016

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaYear after year this Gewürztraminer displays a pleasing correctness for the variety. It's an extravagant grape, and the JoieFarm team give it full rein: lychee, honey, orange blossom and Turkish delight are focused and pure. The palate has richness, spice, a touch of bacon fat, and it's a little chubby and boozy, also appropriate for the style that self-consciously emulates ripe, fulsome Alsatian thoroughbreds. The finish is clean, essentially dry, and fruit-fuelled, but well refreshed by acidity to help wash down the platter of charcuterie you'll need to accompany. Confident Gewürztraminer that is made with care and vision.Tasted: 17 July 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.90 winery direct Producer: JoieFarmDistributors: Winery Direct
