The wine that first got me into wine many years ago, Cave Spring's Gewürztraminer is a brilliant example of what the varietal can achieve in Ontario and a world-class example of the varietal in its own right. There's lychee, of course, though it seems toned down from previous vintages, along with peach, pear, and touches of spice. Luscious and silky in the mouth, the sweetness kept in check with some citrusy bitterness towards the finish and some refreshing dryness as well, this is a gorgeously sexy wine that remains elegantly balanced and under control even as it arouses the senses.
