Wine Review: This yellow colored Gewurtz opens with a pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and quite quaffable. The flavor profile is a mild Bartlett pear with a hint of apple. The finish is dry and easy going. This offering is quite food friendly and would nicely complement grilled swordfish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ideal growing conditions at Sawmill Creek Vineyards have captured the exquisite spice and complexity that typifies Gewürztraminer in the Finger Lakes. Delicate but intense orange peel, spice and floral aromas combined with flavors of ripe pear and lychee balance a palate that is rich, creamy and elegant.
