Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for our 2000 Gewürztraminer were grown in our estate vineyards located in the southern end of the Dry Creek Valley. Immediately after harvest, the grapes were crushed and pressed. The juice was fermented in a combination of small oak barrels and temperature contolled stainless steal tanks. The fermentation was arrested leaving a residual sugar of .94 percent. After three months of aging in tanks, the wine was bottled in early 2001. Tasting Notes: Our 2000 vintage begins with a classic Gewürztraminer nose of spice, floral notes, grain and grapefruit. Flavors of sweet citrus lead to a long, smooth finish. Firm acidity provides balance to the slight sweetness. Food Pairing: This wine pairs especially well with Asian dishes and curry, sweet and sour, honey, ginger, and peanut sauces. Traditionally, it has been extremely popular for holiday dinners. For a real treat, pair our Gewürztraminer with an apple dessert or pumpkin pie.
