Quails' Gate Gewürztraminer Orchard Block 2018

West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaQuails' Gate makes two Gew each year: this reserve series, and their straight 'entry level'. Orchard Block Gew is a single vineyard planted in 1989, was whole cluster pressed, and partially fermented and aged in oak. Much more plump than its sister gew, yet still relatively restrained for the grape, thanks to its Boucherie Mountain volcanic soils, and northern Okanagan latitude. Apricot, tangelo, white peach, fennel is bracketed with lime pith, tightening this perfectly for accessible drinking with a variety of foodstuffs, or solo.Tasted: 22 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 BCLS Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
