Wine of the Week for January 19, 2009

Hillebrand Artist Series Gewurztraminer VQA 2007 - $10.95
Style: W3

Canada: Niagara

The colour on this scrumptious wine is a pale greenish straw. The nose is delicate, with aromas of rose peach with just a hint of petrol. Very smooth with citrus and mango flavour, a firm acidity and a spicy finish. Very good body and length. There is very good gewurz character here and it's a terrific bargain. An able partner for souvlaki, Thai or sushi. (LCBO/Vineyards stores 554378)
