Wine Review: This almost clear colored Gewurtztraminer from the Finger Lakes is very good. It opens with a mild apricot bouquet with a hint of lychee. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a mild minerality and lychee blend with hints of white pepper and faint apricot. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Gewurz is food friendly and would pair well with Peking ravioli. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Refreshing, with lychee, light rose, and gentle spice notes of cinnamon and clove and a soft finish. Off-dry. Keuka Spring "Gewurz" makes a wonderful aperitif. Or enjoy it with grilled shrimp or chicken, asparagus, strong cheeses, or Asian cuisine such as Thai curry. The character of this wine is perfect with spicy or any food.
