Winemaker's Notes:

True to its name, this Gewurztraminer offers up varietal spiciness, along with intense aromas and flavors of lychee, tangerine, orange, and cream. It has an excellent balance of sweet, rich fruit and crisp acidity, along with a slight minerality.

Gewurztraminer is excellent as an apéritif and also goes well with Southeast Asian dishes. Serve with Pad Thai, coconut milk curries, Chinese chicken salad, or beef skewers with a peanut-ginger dipping sauce.

About The Hogue Cellars:

The Hogue Cellars, founded in 1982 by Mike and Gary Hogue, is located in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, the premier grape growing region of the state. The climate and soils of the Columbia Valley produce grapes with intense fruit flavors and high natural acidity. The wines have a liveliness and ripe, zesty fruit flavors that make them ideal complements to a wide range of foods.
