Mayhem Gewurztraminer 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe vines are 25 years old and originate from cuttings of a German variety, and the clusters are pressed whole to retain its delicate aromatics, although the word delicate might be a stretch. A bit of lees time is the best solution to keeping gewurztraminer from running away from itself in the glass with an over-exuberant, litchi fruit character. It’s a solid effort and ready to drink. Capable of matching most dishes with spice or sweetness that would overpower a completely dry wine.Tasted: 28 August 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 18.00 winery direct, vqa, private retail Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
