Gewürztraminer 2013

MADE BY HERMANN J. WIEMER VINEYARDS IN FINGER LAKES, NEW YORK

MOUTH SAYS...

Gewürztraminer is undoubtedly a mouth-full, but trust us, it's worth it.

Gewürz is German for “spice,” and this dry-style Gewürztraminer has beautiful spicy notes to compliment hints of almost-pickable peaches and melon. It has a floral aroma and a touch of coriander that makes our mouths water. This is a wine geek's favorite that is our secret total crowd-pleaser.

Hermann J. Wiemer was one of the first people to realize that the climate and soil in the Finger Lakes area of New York are similar to that of the Mosel Valley in Germany, which is famous for Riesling and Gewürztraminer. And the winery he founded makes world-class wines from classic German grapes that we enjoy as much as any we’ve tried.

We keep a bottle of this in the fridge for when we get Chinese takeout. Dumplings and wine? Best Tuesday night ever.
