2018 Gewurztraminer | Valley's Hand Vineyard - FFT
This bright and beautiful wine is one I look forward to making each year; Gewurztraminer is so interesting, I never know what to expect!
The rate at which the grapes ripen varies depending on how much warm weather we receive during the growing season. They can literally ripen overnight— which they did for this vintage after a few days of very warm weather.
With the grapes picked at the peak of ripeness, this wine will greet you with exquisite tropical aromas on the nose and delightfully bright acidity on the palate, leading to a well-rounded finish. Enjoy on its own or pair with a spicy Asian-inspired dish
