Wine Review: This light straw colored Gewurztraminer opens with an attractive lychee bouquet with a hint of ginger. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mild lychee with hints of apricot, minerality and tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last quite some time. This Gewurz would pair well with Thai rolls. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We are thrilled to showcase the bright, crisp, bone dry side of Gewurztraminer with this bottling. At initial sniff, you might well expect a slightly sweet wine based on the decadent floral and spice notes, but your first sip reveals the absolutely fresh and zesty nature of the wine. The leading jasmine and gardenia aromas wrap around you, giving that perfect aromatherapy bliss. With time in the glass, tangerine and spicy grapefruit chime in, underlain with crushed oyster shells. The mouth is full of energy yet light as silk in texture, with the earlier citrus notes buffered by lime and pear, finishing with pretty lily of the valley touches framing the perky grapefruit. Gorgeous young and wonderfully fresh in its youth, this is an amazing wine to cellar away for a bit as well. We love how the wine's brightness provides a perfect foil for curry dishes, as well as simple goat cheese snacks.
