Description

Sourced from 34 year old vines on the cool climate Celilo vineyard in Washington's incredibly picturesque Columbia Gorge appellation, the grapes are frozen after harvest. As Andrew explains, "The little reddish Gewürz marbles spent two to three days inside a bladder press as we attempted to relieve them of their very essence. The resulting juice was sweet and concentrated, much of the grapes’ water content having been left behind in the form of ice. Fermentation lasted nearly four months at cool temperatures until we felt we had achieved the perfect balance of sugar, alcohol, and acidity." Indeed he did as this delightful, medium sweet wine shows lovely, classic Gewurztraminer aromas of fragrant rose water and white flowers, along with peach and pineapple flavors on the medium bodied palate. It finishes with a good amount of juicy acidity so it's not cloying or overly unctuous. Andrew recommends, "savoring this wine on its own, with fresh pears and stone fruits, with mild cheeses, or with barely sweet fruit and nut desserts."
