What wine did I drink?
The Red Rooster 2015 Gewürztraminer which is a BC VQA wine from Penticton.
- This wine had a moderate level of sweetness that I enjoyed. It was more dry than other Gewürztraminer I have had which almost taste too sweet to eat with a meal and made it stand out for me.
- The taste was full-bodied and quite flavourful for a white. I tasted fresh, fruity, and floral notes of lychee and pear.
- It would be a great pairing with seafood, salads, and Asian food.
- I also loved the cute abstract rooster logo and thought the bottle was visually appealing enough to make it stand out in a liquor store aisle.
Would I Buy Again?
Yes. I enjoyed the flavour and level of sweetness of this gewürztraminer and it is one of my favourite versions that I have tried.
