Dear Smoke&Gamble: On behalf of WineAlign, the judges and team involved in our inaugural National Wine Awards of Canada we would like to congratulate you on your Smoke & Gamble 2011 Gewurztraminer Sussreserve , Ontario, Canada winning a BRONZE medal in our awards. While we wanted to let you know as soon as we could, we respectfully ask that you keep this information confidential until we formally announce the winners in early September.
Very deep ruby in appearance. The nose offers up suggestions of red and black currants with red and black cherry, all accented by vanilla and cocoa notes. So smooth in the mouth! The lovely mouthfeel is further enhanced by structured tannins. Ripe, approachable and very well put together. This is one to be excited about, especially alongside beef skewers, fajitas or steak-topped pizza. (VINTAGES panel, March 2013)
