Tasting Notes & Food Pairing:

Our second iteration of our Barrel Fermented Gewürztraminer presents aromatics of neroli and creamsicle.  A delicate and dry but bright palate follows with lean, understated lychee notes wrapped in honeysuckle and wildflower honey finished with a light, dancing prickle of clove.  A classic pairing with a Thanksgiving feast (and truly, any holiday meal), Gewürztraminer also works wonderfully with Thai and Asian cuisine of all kinds.

Vintage Notes:

Winter in 2017 was again unexpectedly, and a little nerve-wrackingly, mild (we kept waiting for the other shoe to drop). After the drought of 2016 I think we all welcomed the rains of early spring 2017 but when the wet continued into late spring… then early summer… then mid-summer… enough was enough. Just when everyone felt that all was lost mid-July dried right up, temperatures soared, and we were finally blessed with Summer with a capital “S”. The vines went wild!  In October -mid-harvest- it still felt like high summer. Harvest just kept going and going with everyone reporting larger than normal yields and I think we were all a little more than pleasantly surprised by the truly astonishing qualities we were finding. Look to whites from 2017 to be vibrantly expressive and reds to be stately and sophisticated.
