WINERY PROFILE | Josef Drathen

“This is a lovely new value addition to the regular listings at the LCBO, riding a fine line between the fresh, lively, citrus side, and the more floral, oily, off-dry style of typical gewürztraminer. A pinch of sugar lengthens and broadens the palate, and makes this a fine match for lightly spiced, aromatic herb-enhanced foods. Modest 11% alcohol adds to the drinkability, while a wet concrete-like minerality adds to the complexity. Drink now. Tasted March 2015.”
