2018 Gewurztraminer Estate - Cave Spring Cellars
.This wine originates from our Cave Spring Vineyard, located on a hillside of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario known as the Beamsville Bench. Here, moderating on-shore breezes allow for the full ripening of this aromatic grape, resulting in a richly textured wine with classic varietal traits of spice and exotic fruit.
This wine is explosive on the nose, with intense aromas of Asian pear, white peach and rosewater alongside hints of lychee nut and orange blossom. The palate is crisp and quite dry up front, yet very full and unctuous in the middle, showing highly extracted flavours of ripe, spiced pear and citrus. The finish remains rich in feel with persistent ginger-orange peel flavours, closing with a mild yet vibrant balance of acidity.
