Gewurztraminer (85%) and our Estate-Grown Muscat Ottonel (15%)

Winemaking

Both lots were exceptionally ripe and blended at fermentation, which was done long and cold. All the easier to stick when the RS (residual sugar) and TA (titratable acidity) hit the sweet spot and what a spot it is. It is the first time since 2013 we have stepped up to the plate to make our version of a semi-sweet wine.

 Critical Acclaim

“This semi-sweet blend of 85% gewürztraminer from Twenty Mile Bench in Niagara and 15% muscat ottonel that’s estate-grown in PEC, jumps from the glass with an aromatic bouquet of floral notes, sharp spice and rosewater. It spreads over the palate with delightful and delicious flavours—Turkish delight confectionary, lime cordial and lemon pie filling; the latter two provide good lemon-lime tang to balance the sweetness. It’s divine paired with Key lime or lemon meringue pie or a fresh nectarine or peach flan.” Score 90 Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com

  “This is Rosehall’s version of a semi-sweet wine with a nose of exotic tropical fruits, marmalade, grapefruit, lime cordial and lychee/ginger notes. It’s ticklish sweet on the palate, but somewhat balanced by the acidity and shows lovely honey notes, tropical fruits, candied citrus rinds, lychee, ginger and a long finish. Tasty sweetie.” Score 89 Rick VanSickle, Winesinniagara.com
