Rust Wine Co Gewürztraminer 2022

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOff Golden Mile Bench's South Rock Vineyard, and its gravelled fluvial soils, this old vine gew (clone 47, planted 1973) was fermented on skins over 4 days in stainless where it remained for a short stint prior to bottling. Upon cracking the screw cap this has a lot of reductive and vegetal notes, which improve gradually with a good amount of air time. Underneath you'll find some pear skin, white peach, and subtle apricot on a watery palate, with a little rasp of ginger spicing on the warming bitter finish. Perhaps best tied together with lightly spiced and/or sweet & sour dishes.Tasted: 04 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
