Summerland Wines to Entice You

Dirty Laundry Vineyard 2010 Woo Woo Vines Gewurztraminer - $18
Delicate notes of lychee and crushed flowers dance on the nose while the lush palate finishes long with a touch of lingering spice.

Thornhaven Estates Winery 2009 Gewurztraminer - $18
Very full and oily in the mouth but appropriate levels of acidity help to add balance resulting in a bold expression of the Alsatian varietal. Seekers of subtle, dry "Goo" need not apply.

SummerGate Winery 2009 Kerner - $20
My ultimate pairing suggestion would be a secluded hot deck in the apex of the summer sun, wearing nothing but an ice bucket over your doo-da and soaking up the rays.

Haywire Winery 2009 Switchback Pinot Gris - $23
The Switchback Pinot Gris starts with alluring aromas of juicy, baked peaches and minerality, with herbal notes on the nose. The dry palate offers both fruity and savory flavours of citrus fruits, pears and dried herbs. The finish is moderate in length with lingering lemon tartness.
