Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Gewurz from Navarro is made in a traditional Alsatian style. It opens with a fragrant apricot and lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and displays the classic Alsatian dry mouthfeel. The flavor profile is an Anjou pear and lychee blend with notes of minerality and a touch of apricot. The finish is rather dry and quite refreshing. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with steamed mussels in a garlic wine broth. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Navarro's Gewurztraminer dry table wine is produced from our favorite estate grown grapes. In 2010 the Gewurztraminer berries produced only 60% of normal. In October this wine won the prestigious 2011 Western Wine Award from Sunset Magazine for the best white wine under $20. It's nice to know that we weren't completely crazy when Navarro decided to specialize in this persnickety grape thirty eight years ago. As is Navarro's tradition, the finish is dry and will spice up ham, pot stickers or roasted potatoes.
