Malivoire Gewürztraminer Beamsville Bench Vqa Estate Bottled 2010

Member Review by NiagaraWiner:

After a few glasses this fragrant Gewurzt remains an enigma. A clear nose of spiced apple pie and apricot accent this yellow-ish wine. A sweet palate that is unlike any Gewurtz I’ve tasted from Ontario. A very edgeless and rounded mouthful that ends with a slight dryness on the finish. New World Gewurtz are often criticised for being overly flabby in texture. The softness of this particular vintage appears flabby on the outset, but has a particularly sweet appeal factor. Nevertheless, I remain unsure if this wine perfects balance and smoothness or fails at lacking any edge. A very perplexing experience. Paired well with spicy food.

Sure, you might be able to guess the variety based on the distinct, spicy aromas of this dry white wine, but it would be tough to guess that it came from Canada. Or perhaps not, if you understand the influence that marginal climates have on factors such as the acidity of a wine. This is a classic gewürz: lychee-dominated with a bright, crisp and dry finish.
