Wine – 2005 Wild Goose Mystic River Gewurztraminer

Wild Goose VineyardsHoly crap. I have a new favourite BC Gewurztraminer. The 2004 was Canada’s white wine of the year, so I figured it was worth a try. I bought it at Taylorwood Wines the other day and when I took my first sip it grabbed my taste buds and knocked them around the room.

This wine has a slightly dry finish with Intense (yes, I meant to use the capital “I”) spice, lots of rose petal, lychee and even a hint of white pepper. This wine would be a little slice of heaven here on earth matched with some green Thai curry… or hell, a warm night and some good company.

Now to me, one of the signs of a good wine is how long the finish lasts… and this one sticks around for a while. It was right there leading into the next sip. This is good stuff.

Goddamn!

~$18.95 here in BC.
