Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Gewurtz opens with a very fragrant and attractive lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, and has a dry mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild peach and green pear blend. There is also a touch of lychee as well. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This wine would pair well with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2009 represents the first vintage where our Estate Bottled cuvee resulted in a wine made entirely from our second generation vineyards. The free run juice was fermented and aged, without additional winemaking fuss, for eight months on the lees in oak ovals prior to bottling. The fruit nurtured in the vineyard dominates with tropical flavors of lychee, ginger and citrus. Cold harvest nights insured good acidity and our cellaring regime in oak casks resulted in a dry, crisp, yet rounded wine with hints of yeast.
