2002 - Silver, Great Lakes Wine Judging
A spicy, dry, Alsatian style Gewürztraminer. Refreshing with lively acidity
and notes of minerals and stone fruits.
A winter-sensitive, yet vigorous vine that needs constant attention to assure
the fine flavors of the grape are preserved.
Cool fermentation in stateless steel tanks is used to maintain the fruit and floral aroma
and flavor of the wine. This wine is racked quickly after fermentation to prevent lees contact.
Upon pressing, juice is reserved to add back at bottling to enhance body, aroma and balance of the wine.
Spicy Asian cuisine, chicken and garlic, spicy black beans
