Winemaker's Notes

Gewürztraminer translates to “the spicy grape” and our “Gew” is definitely spicy, but it also has an exotic bouquet of tropical fruits and lychee. It’s smooth and rich with a distinctive and complex finish. There is just a touch of residual sugar, not to add sweetness but to round the mouth feel.

Vineyard Manager's Notes

Our Gewürztraminer is grown on the West side of the Château on a 1 hectare (2.5 acre) parcel. You can easily spot these vines in the late summer and fall because they have a distinctive rosy coloured skin, not the typical greenish skin found on white wine grapes. We planted these vines in 1996 and we feel they are just now hitting their peak producing fantastic hand harvested grapes that are making very interesting wine.

Bosc Family Food Pairings

Gew is not necessarily the first wine you reach for when pairing with food but this wine is remarkably versatile. Yes there are exotic flavors that you can try to match but we think it’s the tremendous mouth feel that makes it a real food partner. Try it with beef stir fry over a bed of hearty buckwheat soba noodles.
