We refer to this as the “S” wine. It may be difficult to pronounce (“zee-geh-RAY-buh), but it’s not difficult to see why this is an extremely popular cool-climate white wine. Siegerrebe is the result of German varietal breeding, from Gewurztraminer and Madeline Angevine stock. Ripening in early to mid-September, this white varietal exhibits a unique rust/bronze colour on the vines. With the green foliage in the vineyard, and Mount Tappen and intense blue sky in the distance, and the ribbon of Siegerrebe on the vines, this is a picture worth a thousand words. Taste it on the vine, and it is just like the finished wine!!
Intense flavours and good balance. Aromas of Tropical Fruit, Apricot, Peach, Pineapple and Honey. This wine has an extremely long finish, and pairs well with Seafood, Cheeses, and Bold dishes such as Curry. Makes a fantastic patio sipper, as well.
This wine has received numerous awards, including Double Gold at the 2017 Savour NW Wine Competition, Gold at the 2017 Best of B.C. WIne Awards, and also the 2017 NW Wine Summit Competition.
