Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: Featherstone Gewürtztraminer 2011
By Tony Aspler
Gewürztraminer is the Shredded Wheat of wine: you either love it or you hate it for its overpowering perfume. I love it, especially the Featherstone made in Niagara, which is very Alsace in style. The 2011, now at Vintages outlets, has that characteristic grapefruit, lychee and rose-petal nose. It’s off-dry, ripe and sensuous, soft on the palate with good length.
Food match: light curries or Thai food
$19.95, Vintages #64592
