2014 Gewürztraminer

Le Bon Climat Vineyard

2014 was one of our best years for this varietal. Fresh and exotic, with enticing rose petal, jasmine, lychee nut fruit notes. It is not oily or unctuous but rather crisp and dry. This combined with an elegant sophistication makes it a delight in warm weather. It is also wonderful with spicy Thai cuisine or a pork roast. A classic.

Gewürztraminer by nature is floral, exotic and has an inherent, mouthwatering bitterness that ideally counterpoints the fruit. Like Riesling, its residual sugar levels can range from dry to dessert sweet. Jim Clendenen chose to allow the Gewürztraminer fruit from his estate vineyard to express itself in a bone-dry style that is Alsatian in nature.

The fruit  is bar­rel fermented in neutral oak, matured surlies, completes malolactic fermentation, and develops naturally in wood for about six months. Neutral oak provides additional texture and depth without obvious oak tones. Our Gewürztraminer is spicy, with subtle jasmine, lychee nut and Asian pear notes. It is not oily or unc­tuous. The freshness, spice, and crisp texture make it cuddly and food friendly.
