Tasting Notes
Welcome back, Gewürz.  We’ve missed you!  Our more traditional, steel fermented Gewürztraminer kisses your nose with elegant, sensual orange blossoms, rose petals, and crisp, clean steel.  Your palate is embraced with tender, delicate mandarin, and naval orange, soaked in honey, and lightly dusted with cardamom.  A delicious delight, finishing with fresh, soft minerality.

Vintage Notes

Winter of 2021 gave us some surprisingly warm days and just enough snow to be protective when the temperatures dipped low.  Early spring was lovely - sunny and mostly dry with undisturbed flowering and fruit set.  Beginning in June, the summer rains arrived and persisted through August.  Once into September and more so in October, we were blessed with warm and dry weather, allowing us to round out our harvest season in good conditions. The abundant moisture during the summer months resulted in a smaller crop but yielded very fruit-driven and expressive reds and sparkling and bright and refreshing whites and rosés.
