2007 Gewurztraminer/Riesling from Birchwood Estate Wines

posted in Wine |

As you well know, I love wine!

…And, as you probably well know, I enjoy our local Niagara wines the best…

Why? 
Maybe it’s the air, maybe it’s the soil, maybe it’s the climate…I’ll bet it’s all of the above!

So, here’s another beauty from a winery in Beamsville, Ontario, actually owned by Dan Aykroyd.

* Trivia: Did you know that Gewruztraminer is a German word for herbs of the earth? Yup, it is…My mom’s German…LOL

It is gorgeously grapey and fruity with hints of lychee nut, apples and honey.

These fruity flavors trick your palette into thinking it’s actually a sweet wine…(I don’t enjoy very dry wines.)

If you came over to our house, you could bet that we have a bottle of this somewhere.

It’s great for cooking, especially more ethnic Indian and Asian dishes, but it’s even greater for drinking!

High quality, superior flavor and super reasonably priced @ $10.75 CAD.
