Wine Review: This pale straw colored Gewurztraminer opens with a rose petal and tangerine bouquet with a hint of lychee. On the palate, this wine is slightly sweet, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a very mild tangerine and lychee blend with a hint of minerality and almond. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Gewurz is very food friendly and would pair nicely with chicken lo-mein. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The Anderson Valley is considered by many to be the ideal home for Alsatian varieties in the New World, and this complex, aromatic Gewurztraminer is a wonderful example of why. Bursting with apricot, rose petal and honeysuckle on the nose, it’s a perfumed showstopper. On the palate, it explodes with layers of lychee, Asian pear, orange blossom and a wet stone minerality. Showcasing a delicate balance between taut acidity and nuanced sweetness, it concludes with an energetic and lingering finish.
