Fielding Estate Winery Gewürztraminer Niagara Peninsula Vqa 2006

Member Review by Grape Juice:

Soft and seemingly shy at first, this Gewurz builds on all of the characteristics that fans of the varietal love, while tossing in enough accompanying uniqueness to excite even those generally leery of this highly aromatic little grape. The classic identifiers of rose petals and lychee are most assuredly present on both nose and palate, but don’t expect to get bored…you’ll also find starfruit, candied lemon, mango and a pleasant muskiness on the nose, and a complex palate with floral, musk, and mandarin orange notes. Nicely balanced acidity and a warm, fuzzy finish round out a finely-tuned structure. Goes perfectly with really spicy food, like a raging hot chili lime veggie stirfry.

The Vineyards From their first small vintage in 2002, Fielding wines are made with meticulous care, crafted from grapes harvested from estate vineyards, which the family transformed from old peach and pear orchards. They chose to plant grapes most suited to the Beamsville Bench, considered an area of perfect soil and climate for producing superb varietals. Fielding’s two vineyards are tenderly cared for using environmentally friendly farming practices. The 20 acres lying on the Beamsville Bench are fully planted and also 40 acres near the Niagara Lakeshore are planted. The Fieldings believe that great wines start with the care in growing and harvesting of the crops. The Wines Great care is taken to create complex, classic wines from among the superb varietals that thrive in the Niagara terroir. Annual selections are made from available varietals and with passion and dedication they are turned into wines of extraordinary excellence. Fielding Estate produces wine only in small quantities to ensure the highest quality in every bottle. With emphasis on Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Syrah for the reds, and Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris for the whites, Fielding wines have achieved astounding success, setting the standard for years to come. The Fielding label is available by ordering online at www.fieldingwines.com for direct delivery, or by visiting the Wine Lodge. Fielding wines are also served at select Ontario restaurants; for a list of restaurants, please visit the website. Read less
