Culmina Family Estate Orange Wine Gewurztraminer No. 013 NV

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their estate Arise Bench, on the Golden Mile Bench, this is Culmina's first foray into the world of orange wines. After a native ferment in stainless, with 67 days on skins, this remained there until the following March, when it was bottled. This pours a shining golden orange hue, leading a dry, tightly slicked palate of apricot, mango, peach blossoms, kumquat, and pear skin, all shaped by a severe, bitter sharp edge. Certainly a depart from Culmina's luxe style, and one that may leave the winery's fans puzzled. Nice first effort, and looking forward to the next.Tasted: 15 June 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.00 wine club member exclusive Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
