Tasting notes and food pairing ideas:
Filled with spiced apricot and floral notes, a touch of residual sugar in the wine was left to balance the natural acidity and provide a beautifully rounded texture. This wine is delicious to drink on its own, but is also a fantastic companion to many different foods. Spicy Thai, Chinese, Mexican and flamingly-hot Indian curries are all potential matches with this delicious wine.
Gewurztraminer grapes were hand harvested, lightly destemmed and crushed in to stainless steel fermentation tanks for a brief 24 hour cold soak period. The wine was fermented at cooler temperatures to preserve the highly aromatic characteristics of grapes and then lightly filtered prior to bottling.
