2012 Gewürztraminer

Columbia Valley

This Gewürztraminer is such an enjoyable wine with beautiful, expressive fruit and clove spice. This is a lush style of Gewürztraminer with a lot of floral character, yet it still maintains the grape’s natural crisp acidity. A touch of Muscat offers citrus notes and a deeper spice note. A majority of the fruit is specifically from the cooler Yakima Valley, where the extra hang time allows the spiciness of the variety to fully develop. A warming trend in late July and dry conditions through mid-October were ideal for fruit ripening in 2012.
