Pillitteri 2006 Fusion Gewurztraminer Riesling

We enjoyed supper last night with a Pillitteri 2006 Fusion Gewurztraminer Riesling .

This is not the first time I have enjoyed this wine, as I usually pick up a bottle of this when Teena goes away for a week-end. This was Teena's first experience in tasting this delicious blend.

Pillitteri is a family winery located in the Niagara wine region. The Pillitteri Logo contains a Sicilian cart (pictured), called a carretto, which is intricately painted with scenes of Pillitteri ancestors. The winery is most famous for it's award winning Ice Wines.

We both love Rieslings and Gewurztraminers so this Pillitteri blend was very intriguing. I find it light, refreshing and fruity. It has a sugar level of 2 so is not too dry, is 11.5% alcohol and costs 12.95 at the LCBO.

It is a wine that I will be enjoying again.
