Mayhem Gewurztraminer 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMayhem is a young joint project from siblings Terry Meyer Stone (of Anarchist Mountain Vineyards), and JAK Meyer (of Meyer Family Vineyards). The fruit is Naramata based, from Cellarsbend Vineyard. The ferment is a mix of stainless steel and 20+ percent neutral oak for 21 days before almost all of it went into old oak for eight months. The attraction here is the dryness and freshness that lets the apricot and peach shine. I tried this with Dungeness crab, and it was a good match.Tasted: 04 September 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 15.65 winery online, grocery, VQA and select private retailers Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
