Wine Review: This pale yellow colored blend opens with a pear and mild vanilla like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and flavorful. The flavor profile is a unique vanilla infused pear and lemon blend with notes of oak, lychee and hints of wax bean. The finish is dry and its flavors linger after the wines is going. This wine is unique and flavorful. I would have it with slight sharp cheddar cheese by the pool on hot summer day. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our winemaker's personal experiment has proven to be a racy, refreshing success. Though a minor player, Gewurztraminer sings most brilliantly in this "Swiss blend" with traditionally cool-climate Kerner and Rieslaner, contributing very spicy aromatic notes of white pepper and lychee on top of lime, honey and an appealing muskiness. Supple and alive with the concentrated flesh of creamy nectarine, honey and long lingering lemon in excellent dry harmonic balance to please even the most demanding chef. We’ve got a white to marry with all those spicy foods that normally vanquish the best cellar selections. Start with a simple grilled linguica, shrimp spring rolls dipped in spicy peanut sauce, or anything spicy and Asian.
