LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: Identifiably gewürztraminer in flavour, this also has a dose of the bitterness that you often find in the back palate of the variety. The bitterness here is a nice counterpoint to the sweetness (about 200g/L of residual sugar), which is also moderated by the clean acidity. Overall it's an interesting and nicely balanced icewine.
