2020 Broken Granite Gewürztraminer
This is a new wine and a new style of Gewürztraminer for Peak Cellars, crafted for those that seek out wines with rich complexity, body, structure and texture – our tribute to Alsace.
The aromas are ever-evolving in the glass, an eclectic mix of fruit, floral, savoury and spice: fresh ginger, golden kiwi, tropical and botanical, underripe pineapple, delicate floral / elderflower, dehydrated fruit / spicy fruit cake, all accented with hints of basil and mint, lemongrass and freshly-peeled willow branches. The palate has a rich, oily viscosity and weight, with sweet and savoury flavours of starfruit, candied ginger and spice, with a long elegant finish.
This is such a versatile food-pairing wine – try spicy Asian dishes (think cloves, star-anise and Chinese Five-spice), Pho, smoked pork shoulder or other fatty pork, fried Southern foods (like an oyster Po’ boy), tourtière, duck, or a potato perogy pizza with sauerkraut with bacon.
