I truly believe that Gewürztraminer is one of the most underappreciated wines out there. When made properly it has a lot to offer, both for sipping enjoyment and for pairing with foods that can often be challenging for wine accompaniment. The nose of our 2015 Gewürztraminer explodes with fresh fruit aromas; limes, lychee, peaches, nectarines, and melon are all present kicking your olfactory senses into over drive, in preparation for that first sip. Off-dry at about 1.2% residual sugar this Gewürztraminer is appropriately sweet. There is a little bit of papaya that jumps into the flavor mix which matches the nose. The lime from the nose comes on as lime custard on the palate, rather than fresh limes.
As I mentioned this wine is great with unconventional items for wine pairing. “Ensenada” or “Baja” style fish tacos are a winner with this wine, also Yellow Thai Curry or Chana Masala, (an Indian dish made with Chickpeas and Curry). If you’ve never had any of the dishes mentioned above here’s your chance to jump out and try something new in 2016!!
