Wine Review: This pale straw colored Gewurtztraminer opens with a fragrant apricot and ripe lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild apricot and lychee blend with notes of tangerine and green apple. The finish is dry and its ripe fruit flavors are nicely pronged. I would pair it with Coquille St. Jacques. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This dry style of Gewurztraminer shows aromas of rose petals and jasmime. It is round in the mouth with flavors of litchi and grapefruit. The lingering finish has crisp notes of ginger with a balanced creaminess. The 2014 Gewurztraminer is an excellent sipping wine. It also makes a perfect complement to a wide variety of salads. Our top salad choices are bay shrimp & avocado salad with honey-mango dressing or smoked trout salad with new potatoes topped with mustard dressing.
