Critic's Rating90 pts


You won’t want to miss our first ever vintage of Gewürztraminer. This dry, crisp style “Gew” is exactly what the doctor ordered on a hot summer day. On the nose, it displays lychee, rose petal, tangerine, kumquat and honeysuckle. On the palate, you’re treated to rosehip, lychee, fuzzy peach candies, grapefruit and orange blossom.
