Written By Treve Ring Libations / White Wine Sep 30, 2009 Pentâge Winery 2008 Gewurztraminer SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestPaul Gardner and Julie Rennie’s boutique Pentâge Winery rests on 35 acres along Penticton’s Skaha Lake. Production is limited to only 5000 cases a year, and their small-lot releases sell out quickly. Their newest vineyard, monikered ‘The Dirty Dozen’ was planted three years ago – and wine watchers (me!) are eagerly awaiting the first wines from the Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, Petite Syrah, Zinfandel, Malbec, Mourvedre, Grenache and Tempranillo planted there.Their current releases (9 whites and 7 reds annually) are from their first vineyard, planted in 1997. And what lovely wines are being handcrafted from these 10 year old vines. The perfumed aromas of the 2008 Gewurztraminer ($18) skyrocket out of the glass – lush lychee and grapefruit notes lead to a palate of ripe sweet apricot, citrus and mineral, a full, rounded mouthfeel and a lengthy finish. Though there is a lot of fruit sweetness here, the wine finishes dry and crisp – delish.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean)GewurztraminerOkanaganWhite WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
