Meyer McLean Creek Road Gewürztraminer 2022

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their home estate McLean Creek Vineyard, this gewürztraminer is closing in on 30 years of age. Not your average gew when it comes to winemaking, the grapes are picked at two different times, and the late pick gets an extra 24 hours of skin contact. Both lots are fermented in stainless steel or older French barrels for more than thirty days, and left on lees for 16 more weeks. Aromatically bright with notes of honeysuckle, ginger, litchi, and ripe pear with a slippery soft finish. It smells sweet but finishes barely off dry. Try this with spicy bites for best effect.Tasted: 25 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
