2017 Wild Goose Mystic River Gewürztraminer

Admittedly Gewürztraminer is not my favourite grape. So many examples of it are overdone, soapy, and potpourri-like on the nose but sweet, and flabby, with no acidity on the palate to balance the sweetness.

This is a stunning example of what this grape is capable of in the Okanagan. It’s beautifully aromatic, with notes of rose petal, lychee, ginger and honeydew on the nose. It’s so light it almost dances over your palate, it’s playful, precise, with focused limey acidity and a beautiful long finish.

Try it as an aperitif or with a thick slice of the best brie you can find!
