Wine Review: This light yellow Gewurztraminer from Navarro opens with a very fragrant lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a blend lemon and lychee with hints of mild minerality, orange, and a touch of yellow grapefruit in the end. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely for a long time after the wine is gone. This Gewurz would pair well with grilled lemon-lime herb orange roughy. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Navarro's Estate Bottled Gewurz is very dry, whereas our Cuvee Traditional has a little residual sugar, making it more accessible, especially in its youth; firm acidity means the wine finishes crisp and clean. We use amber colored bottles for Navarro's Gewurztraminers as it helps protect the wines' spicy flavors from being light struck by ultraviolet rays.
