2015 Desert Hills Gewurztraminer
BC VQA Okanagan Valley
Sept 21st 2015
Floral, lychee, spicy flavours with rose petal, smooth on the mid palate and a crisp, long finish.
Sage Brush located on the Black Sage Bench, benefits from long, hot summer days and moderating cool nights providing the backbone for this wine. Sitting at a higher elevation than our other vineyards, our Gewurztraminer grown at Night Hawk Vineyard produces a subtle elegance by nature of the vineyard’s position.
1200 cases produced
Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by a whole berry gravity “crush”. Fermentation temperatures were maintained at 15 degrees to optimize flavours. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was racked into stainless where it cold stabilized for two weeks, filtered, then bottled.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with Asian dishes, white meats or great sipping on its own.
