Pale gold, our 2019 Gewurztraminer is perfumed with nose of rose petals, clementine peel, and cardamom. The wine is dry and lush on the palate with nectarine and lychee and finishes crisp with ginger and spice.
The 2019 vintage was a classic Oregon vintage with a significantly smaller than average crop, due to low fruit set in the spring. A slow start in the spring had average bud break dates, but delayed growth in the early part of the growing season. Warm late summer weather accelerated fruit development and cooler fall temperatures and led to a majority of the harvest occurring in October, similar to the previous two years. Good ripening occurred due to lower than average crop levels despite early frosts in October.
