Vibrant floral aromas combine with classic lychee notes and bright stone fruit, followed by delicate flavors of apricot and pear on the palate balanced by supple acidity and a spicy ginger finish.
Our Gewürztraminer comes from vineyards in Anderson Valley, located in Mendocino County just northwest of Napa Valley. The cooling influences of the nearby Pacific Ocean make this a perfect growing region for varietals such as Gewurztraminer, Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Noir.
The grapes for this wine were grown in the Anderson Valley, Mendocino County. We pick after the grapes have developed a pink to reddish hue, and the aromas are effuse with rose petals, cinnamon spice and exotic lychee fruit. We handle the fruit very carefully, avoiding as much as possible some of the more bitter tannins found in the skins. It is cold fermented in stainless steel and bottled in the spring.
Gewürztraminer is a grape I am familiar with, as it was one of the first white grapes I made into wine when I started in the wine business 38 years ago. It is delightful with strong cheeses, spicy Asian dishes and sauced white meats. - Brooks Painter
