Drink of the Week – Tinhorn Creek Vineyard’s 2012 Gewurztraminer
This week’s Drink of the Week is Tinhorn Creek Vineyard’s 2012 Gewürztraminer. Beautifully aromatic, grapes for this wine are grown 100% in Tinhorn Creek Vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench just south of Oliver, BC in the Okanagan Valley.
In the late afternoon the sun dips behind the mountains casting a shadow over the vineyard allowing the grapes to retain their aromatics and fruit flavours. The result is a very aromatic Gewürztraminer with aromas and flavours of rose petals, lychee, pink grapefruit, with hints of spice. Try it with spicy Thai or Indian dishes. Goes great on the patio on summers days as well!
Pick up a bottle at your local BC Liquor Store, or order from Tinhorn Creek’s online store, Facebook store or on Foodie Pages – a new online farmers’ market where you can buy directly from Canada’s top producers, farmers and artisans!
