Winemaker's Notes

Our RiverAerie Gewürztraminer is from the Evergreen Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes region of the Columbia Valley. We prefer this vineyard for many of our white wines because cool nighttime temperatures help to preserve the natural acidity in the grapes and because high limestone content in the soil imparts a slight mineral quality to the wines. The Gewürztraminer is bottled within six months of harvest to capture the ester aromas and fresh fruit flavors. We try to minimize the impact of the winemaker on the RiverAerie white wines, so the natural varietal characteristics can predominate.

Juniper berry, apricot, and cantaloupe aromas; bright but rich entry on the palate; grapefruit pith and coriander seed flavors on the mid-palate, crisp acidity.

"Beautifully aromatic, with rose petal accents to the classic lychee, grapefruit and pear aromas and flavors, finishing almost completely dry and with impressive refinement. Drink now through 2012. 300 cases made." 90 Points
