Vig Amber 2022

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGewürztraminer from the Naramata Bench, this is a blend of three components: one macerated overnight; another fermented over three weeks; and the third on skins for five months. It was then aged in stainless steel and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Pouring a hazy pale amber, this has a punchy, aromatic nose led by orange blossoms and elderflower, alongside juicy peach and candied orange peel, leading to a dry, textured palate that shows some bitterness from the extended skin contact. Try this with tangy, salty light bites like olives stuffed with anchovies.Tasted: 28 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
