Jackson-Triggs Gewurztraminer Scores Bigtime!

Greetings All and Sundry!

Tonight your humble Deacon is pontificating about another absolutely amazing Niagara wine: Jackson-Triggs 2004 Proprietors' Reserve Niagara Peninsula Gewurztraminer. I just had a totally lurch dinner, prepared by the Deaconess. We consumed enormous quantities of red Thai curried shrimp (which we can easily afford) with basmati rice, snow peas and coriander. Typically, we would go with an Alsatian Gewurz to augment the intense flavours of a red curry. Well, tonight we decided to go with a local variant, but the Deacon's hopes were not high. Well surprise! Jackson-Triggs has produced a classic Alsatian style Gewurztraminer that is full of lychee nuts and aroma of pink rose petals. It's beautifully refreshing with a classic, slightly oily mouth-feel. It was so perfect with Thai food, that one wonders why one would consume anything else. I say forget the Alsatian and go with the totally lurch Niagara! The red curry was moderately hot, but the Gewurz was not overly sweet and managed to enhance the food perfectly, and being only 12% alcohol it didn't kick the burn too high.
This is damn lurch wine!
Pick some up and thank me and the Deaconess.
You heard me.
