TASTING NOTE: This is sourced from stony soils with clay loam and rich limestone over shale and sandstone. It delivers crisp notes of apple, lychee, peach and spice with that great Gewürztraminer rosewater note. Excellent texture and vibrancy. Always a top-notch example from one of Ontario's best producers. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2017) Price $ 18.95
