The Hatch Hobo Series Gewurztraminer 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe first-ever Hobo Series gew won't be easy to track down with sales confined to the cellar door, select restaurants and retailers, but it is well worth tracking down. The ferment is all stainless steel and aged on lees for eight months. The fruit comes off the Palo Solera Vineyard in East Kelowna and leads with a fragrant, dry, electric styling that spells food-friendly. This is the 5th installment of the Hobo Series, and it’s a good one. As for the hobo connection, The Hatch says “[if] you go to Alsace this grape produces some of the most ethereal wines in the world. Outside Alsace? Hasn’t happened. This chap, though, brings the big aromatics, exotic flavours and rich texture that would make its Alsace cousins proud.”Tasted: 05 November 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.99 winery direct, private retail, restaurants Producer: The HatchDistributors: Winery Direct
