    4.33 overall score

    Tasting Notes:
    Our winemaker hit upon a real gem with this spectacular blend of Riesling and Gewürztraminer. Customers come back time and again for Touché. Which offers a nose of Juicy Fruit gum, honeydew melon, lychee, pineapple and citrus.

    On the palate, Touché is all fruit, highlighting sweet pineapple, melon, grapefruit, orange essence, peach and lime.

    This wine compliments Pad Thai, spring roll, spicy samosa roll, and citrus based chicken and seafood. Try it with garlic based dishes too! Or just on its own.

    Available at select LCBO stores.

    North 42 Degrees Estate Winery Gewürztraminer 2012 Review

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    This lightly straw coloured white is actually quite weighty and has a superbly rich mouthfeel. The nose displays intense complexity: rose petals, exotic lychee and honey. Young guava plays on the tongue and is rounded by delicate honeysuckle and then finishes with compelling spices. This wine is a super neat treat!

    Germanic in style it pairs perfectly with German fare but it may also offer an exciting contrast to more exotic spicy dishes.

      Winemaker’s Notes:

      The sweet floral notes of Gewürztraminer are brought to life by the backbone crisp acidity of Riesling creating perfect balance in this harmonious blend. Originally feeling these two wines were too good to blend our winemaker had only one thing to say … “Touché”
