Tasting Notes

Bright, light lemon with a hint of green. A remarkable bouquet of spiced exotic fruit; mango, pear, cardamom and nutmeg. Full, round and expressive in the mouth; rich and plush and showing a long finish from a wonderfully ripe vintage.

Winemaker Notes

On October 1, 2012, 10.6 tons of Gewurztraminer were harvested and placed into a refrigerated truck and cooled for two days at 50 F. 4.4 tons were harvested on October 3. Both lots were de-stemmed, crushed, and pumped to a stainless steel tank then cold-soaked for two days before being pressed. Harvest chemistry was 22.8 Brix, acid of 5.1 g/L, and a pH of 3.53. Fermentation with Epernay 2 yeast continued for 25 days at ~64F and was stopped at 0.5% residual sugar.

Food Pairing

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.
