Not many people know a lot about Gewurztraminer. It’s one of those varietals that everyone knows of but has maybe written off as ‘too sweet’ or ‘too floral.’ Ha – bet you’ve said that before! Chateau Ste. Michelle, aka Washington’s oldest winery, is located in Woodinville. The grapes for this 2011 Chateau Ste Michelle Gewurztraminer come from the Columbia Valley in Central WA. Side note – if you’re near Seattle and want to taste some wine, Woodinville is definitely worth a visit. It’s very small but I loved it, and I need to go back and hit up this winery because it’s pretty much the main draw of Woodinville. Gewurz tends to be really aromatic regardless of its origins, which is good for wine novices who want to test out their scent skills. This wine has great floral aromas with pear and clove. The citrusy, spicy flavors, balanced minerality and crisp finish help offset some of that sweetness, making it a pretty refreshing wine. I did the friend and boyfriend test on this wine and I can assure you, everyone liked it. So even if you’re not a fan of wines with a hint of sweetness, I’d recommend trying this wine with Thai food or something with an Asian flair… it’ll be a great match. Chok dee! (That means “Cheers!” in Thai… yes, I looked that up).

Fresh and soft, this brims with spicy pineapple and floral flavors, finishing with mild sweetness.

An aromatic wine full of spice, mint, floral notes, and kiwi. The palate is spice filled, medium bodied, and off-dry with broad fruit flavors. An enjoyable wine straight down the fairway.

Pale straw yellow in color. Beautiful nose with honey, white peach, and floral aromas and flavors. Slightly off-dry and light-bodied. Well-balanced with a long finish. Very crisp and refreshing.

This pale straw colored Gewurztraminer opens with a mild clementine bouquet with a hint of lychee. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly balanced and displays a touch sweetness. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral infused clementine and mild peach. The finish is semi-dry with some residue flavors that linger. This Gewurz would pair well with Asian dishes. I would choose cashew chicken.
