This exuberant, full-bodied Gewürztraminer is pale lemon in color, with a bouncy nose of spicy pear, rose petal and orange blossom. Round and ripe in the mouth, full bodied and luxurious, showing spicy fruit, and a long fresh finish of ripe pear, mandarin flavors with notes of tarragon.
On October 15 & 17, 2008 13.3 tons of Gewurztraminer (80% from a new block) was hand harvested and cooled to 45F (23.2 Brix, 6.7 g/L Ta, 3.7 pH). The fruit was de-stemmed and cold-soaked for three days. The cold settled juices were racked to fermentation tanks two days later.
A well-known partner to turkey, chicken, ham and scallops, it is also delectable as an aperitif with smoked oysters, fried calamari or bacon and mild Blue cheeses such as Gorgonzola or Maytag Blue.
