Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

Our very well-loved Rebel is back with the look of light gold sunset in your glass.  A gently floral aroma of chamomile is followed by tangy fruit scents of tamarind & kumquat.  This oaked Gewürztraminer is our most dry and delicate yet with light notes of quince, tamarind and a soft, creamy spiced finish begging to be paired with spicy dishes; Indian, Thai and Vietnamese particularly.

Serving Temp.: 42° - 51° f

Vintage Notes

 Winter of 2018-19 was pretty mild, resulting in little to no bud damage and setting us up for a good year of growing to come. 2019 started with a pretty “by the books” finger lakes spring, with an on-time start to the growing season; no late frosts to hassle us and a reasonable amount of rainfall. The growing season was warm but not hot, with moderate rain which tapering off by the fall to a nice mild harvest season. The weather cooperated well and allowed the vines to achieve full ripeness and flavor development. Overall, a solid growing season finished with a nice easy, harvest.
