2018 Gewürztraminer

Le Bon Climat Vineyard

Intriguing subtle exotic fruit character suggesting Asian pear and lychee nut. It is not oily or unctuous but rather crisp and dry. Its Alsatian character and elegant sophistication makes it a delight as an appetizer with a charcuterie platter, but also serve with spicy Thai cuisine or a pork roast.

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 rose petal, lychee nut and Asian pear notes. It is not oily or unc­tuous. The freshness, spice, and crisp texture make it cuddly and food friendly.
