A fine example of Ontario Gewürzt. You can expect this to play all the correct notes, offering floral tones with suggestions of tropical fruit and lychee, with a mineral underpinning. The palate will be balanced, crisp, lush and round, with a citrus edge to the replays.
Gewurztraminer in Ontario is a hit-and-miss kind of thing but occasionally someone hits the bull's-eye. In this case it was Strewn winery with their 2014 Gewurz. Alsace is the yardstick by which all Grewuztraminer are measured and this one stacks up very well for varietal typicity. Pale straw in colour, it has that characteristic lychee and rose petal nose and Turkish delight flavour, finishing elegantly dry on a pear-like note. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5).
