Review date: April 21, 2017

Wine Review: This pale straw colored Gewurztraminer opens with a mild tangerine and gentle lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused mild lychee with notes of almond and Anjou pear. I also detected a hint of pineapple and orange in the background. It closes dry and its flavors and acidic lingers nicely on the finish. This Gewurz is very good and was appreciated by my sister Sheri. It would pair well with Chinese orange chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Grapefruit and exotic notes of lemongrass lead the nose, with a bit of wet rock minerality. Spring garden aromatics follow, drawing you in and making you close your eyes and sigh, like walking through jasmine vines and orange blossoms. The mouth is especially dense and weighty, rich in pear, green apple, orange zest, and young pineapple. The crisp Fuji apple and ginger finish is lip-smackingly delicious, with an utterly refreshing acidity. We love to match the bright exuberance of the wine with young, fresh mozzarella and goat cheeses, but it’s also great with a shrimp, corn and ginger stir-fry or curry noodle soup.
