Crafted from grapes grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington in wind-blown loess on basalt bed rock.
We put the juice and the grape skins in contact for 12 hours to extract and unleash the exquisite Gewürztraminer aromas locked in the skin. A fraction of the blend (20%) is fermented as an orange wine on the skin. The remainder of the grapes are fermented for 20 days with native yeasts at cool temperature and the fermentation is arrested to the desired sugar level. We do not use any oak and do not put the wine through malolactic fermentation.
Color: Pale gold.
Bouquet: Roses, lychee, clove.
Taste: Passion fruit, melon and tangerine.
Ideal with spicy Indian food, lemon chicken and blue cheeses.
