The Bartier Bros. Gewürztraminer is a unique take on this sweet, fruity varietal. The 11% Semellion gives this wine a complex, yet balanced feel from sip to finish. Very fruity and floral on the nose with notes of lychee and very subtle hints of spice on the palate. This wine is paired great with Asian quisine and spicy dishes. Rated 90 points.
Fresh tree fruits and berry aromas, almost candy-like. Soft on the palate with a slight sweetness that pairs the wine well with spicy dishes such as Thai red curry.
Lone Pine Vineyard straddles a small ridge with a slight and mild West exposure leading over the ridge to a steep East exposure. The vineyard is in the transition zone from the ancient volcanic cone of Giant’s Head Mountain to the silt glacier formed banks above Okanagan Lake. The soils and subsoils are dense with many granite cobbles present which aide in drainage.
Food Pairing Notes
