Wine of the Weekend

Strewn Two Vines Riesling Gewürztraminer, VQA Niagara Peninsula, Magnum

Go big this weekend with this new magnum size bottle of an Ontario favourite at the LCBO.  There’s nothing better than a magnum of Strewn’s Riesling/Gewurztraminer for a weekend with friends and family!  This is one of a few Ontario VQA wines available in 1.5L – double the regular size wine bottle – making it perfect for summer entertaining.


Tasting Notes:  Enticing aromas of spice, roses and lychee are intoxicating. The Gewürztraminer gives the wine solid weight and mouthfeel with flavours of sweet-peach and spice, while the Riesling counterbalances with fresh citrus acidity. This perfectly balanced white blend has a long juicy-fruit, tangy finish.

Enjoy With:  Grilled pork chops with pear ginger jam, spicy Asian food, or grilled white meat.  Well chilled, this is a perfect partner for a summer day on the patio.

Style:  Medium-bodied, off-dry, aromatic white wine.

Terroir/Region:  The Vintner’s Quality Alliance or VQA Niagara Peninsula designation on the label and capsule ensures that all the grapes used in this wine were grown in Ontario. Ontario grows some of the finest aromatic white grape varieties in the world and is particularly good at growing expressive Riesling. Strewn embodies the best of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s wine region with its Riesling Gewurztraminer. Winemaker Marc Bradshaw is passionate about crafting top-quality VQA wines that reflect the Niagara region’s sense of place or terroir.

Producer:  Strewn’s winery is located just outside Niagara-on-the-Lake in what was the old Niagara Canning Company and is committed to producing premium wines from grapes grown in the Niagara region. Strewn celebrated its 20th anniversary in June with some of the best wines in its catalogue. Its love and focus on quality VQA wines shines through with its Two Vines Riesling Gewurztraminer.

Availability:  Celebrate Strewn’s 20th anniversary by picking up a bottle of Strewn Two Vines Riesling Gewurztraminer 1.5L available at the LCBO now.
