Chaberton Estate Winery 2017 Gewürztraminer, Similkameen Valley, $17

By on June 12, 2018

Simon Fraser grad Andrea Lee went onto University of Adelaide for her master’s in enology on her way to becoming Chaberton’s winemaker in 2015. For her third vintage at the Lower Mainland winery, she used grapes from the Similkameen Valley to create a wine with aromas of candied ginger and lychee, then more ginger and lychee on the palate. It’s finished off-dry and would pair well with curry, Thai chicken and strong cheese. This won a double gold medal at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
