Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine were grown in the Anderson Valley, Mendocino County. We pick after the grapes have developed a pink to reddish hue, and the aromas are effuse with rose petals, cinnamon spice and exotic lychee fruit. We handle the fruit very carefully, avoiding as much as possible some of the more bitter tannins found in the skins. It is cold fermented in stainless steel and bottled in the spring. Gewürztraminer is a grape I am familiar with, as it was one of the first white grapes I made into wine when I started in the wine business 38 years ago. It is delightful with strong cheeses, spicy Asian dishes and sauced white meats. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
This wine's wonderful, spicy finish makes it a great match for Thai or Indian cuisine, spicy or well seasoned dishes or with aged and cured, smoked meats.
Other Notes
Store bottle upright. Recommended ageability: 1-3 years from vintage date. Recommended serving temp: 45-49°F

Proof that California can make a good dry Gewurztraminer! Pale gold color. Floral spice aromas. On the palate, white flower, pear, floral, and aromatic herbal notes. Well balanced acidity. Lingering finish with white fruit, flower, and mineral notes. A perfect sushi wine. -Vivino Reviews

Just won Best white wine in its category at the San Francisco Chronicle competition the day before I tasted it. Hints of spice, very mellow, light in the mouth, crisp but not overly, this is a very fun wine. - Vivino Review
