Uniquely different, Strewn's Gewurztraminer Barrel Aged has become somewhat of a specialty wine after four vintages.  In 2011 winemaker Marc Bradshaw had one empty fume barrel and filled it with Riesling to keep the barrel "wetted". The following year Marc used Gewurztraminer and was delighted with the result. Gewurztraminer integrates beautifully with oak and shows hints of tannin and richness. At the same time, oak reduces the perceived lushness and softens the underlying nuance of bitterness that Gewurztraminer normally exhibits.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2016 Gewurztraminer offers vibrant aromas of papaya, melon, pear, orange peel, and notes of candied ginger. The wine is palate-coating with layers of creamy lemon, crisp Gala apple, coconut, vanilla, and a kiss of spice. The inviting aromas, flavours, texture and persistent acidity result in a well-integrated wine. Recommended Serving Temperature 6° to 9° C
Winemaker Notes
Produced from fruit harvested on Halloween (October 31) 2016 from a Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyard at 23.7°Bx. Fermented in stainless steel before being dropped to two seasoned French oak barrels for six months. Following blending, the wine was sterile filtered before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Matching the wine's flavour is a good pairing principle for Strewn's Gewurztraminer Barrel Aged . The notes of apricot and orange will complement chicken or ham dishes with fruit chutney or cooked fruit sauces. The smooth, balanced finish that lingers on the palate helps cut the richness of light cream dishes such as a Chicken & Peach Pot Pie, Seafood Casserole in Beurre Blanc or Lobster Bisque.
