TINHORN CREEK TINHORN CREEK - Gewürztraminer - 2015

TINHORN CREEK Gewürztraminer 2015

See the wine detail page

90 Points

Consistently one of Canada's best gews, and one of the best values in the province. This year the heated 2015 vintage has upped the weightiness of this heady grape, further expanding its waistline. Fortunately, twenty-one year old vines know how to handle Mother Nature, and this, though bigger than 2014, holds a fine line of limey acidity well. Ample gingersnap spicing brings some heat to the concentrated gooseberry, lychee, fresia and peach on the round, silken palate. Perfumed rosewater lingers on the lengthy finish.
