2018 Dry Gewürztraminer


"I love showing this variety to people as it is often an eye-opening experience for them and something that they rarely forget. When you smell a Gewürztraminer there's no confusing it for another wine due to its easily recognizable spicy personality. Describing all of the aromas and flavors found within is also a wonderful adventure that I want to share with our customers. Then your final challenge is to dream up some menu to enjoy with it... Don't resist the challenge. Cheers!"

Tasting notes

Aromas of white tea and apricot are repeated in the flavors with a long finish that is accompanied by ghostly notes of honey and salinity that only leaves you asking for more. 

Production notes

The grapes were picked at around 21-23 brix, once they had reached full maturity then left on skins for 2-3 hours. Then the grapes were pressed whole cluster at a low pressure for 3.5 hours. This is one of the few white wine grapes that we foot-crush before pressing, which allows the aromatics of clove and ginger enough time to be drawn out of the skins and into the juice. The juice was fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures for 2 weeks. Filtering & bottling was done in early January of 2019 to ensure freshness.

OTHER NOTES

Be daring and try pairing this wine with German beef rouladen or fresh, soft pretzels with beer-cheese sauce. 

When to Drink: Enjoy now!
