Winery
Our single vineyard Gewurztraminer was picked at peak ripeness and showcases classic aromas of pineapple, mango, rose petals, and lychee fruit. Highly perfumed and aromatic, the palate is dry, rich, oily, and round. Sometimes called the Queen of Alsatian wines, this wine certainly lives up to its regal reputation.

Varietal: Gewurztraminer

Gewurztraminer varietal grapes are responsible for some of the most aromatic and interesting wines in the world. Originating in the German speaking parts of northern Italy, their natural sweetness produces a wine which is pleasingly 'off-dry', and carries a wide range of fascinating and pleasing flavors The most common flavors present in Gewurztraminer grapes are those of rose water, passion fruit and lychees, making them a favorite with those looking for something a little more flamboyant and decadent in their white wines. The pinkish purple grapes themselves are notoriously difficult to grow, being highly sensitive to both soil type, terroir and climatic conditions, yet it is no wonder that vintners persevere with this varietal due to its unique characteristics and their growing popularity.

Region: California

When it comes to New World wine regions, it is widely agreed that many of the finest wines are grown and produced in California. The long stretches of coastline and the valleys and mountainsides which come off them are ideal areas for vine cultivation, and for over a century now, wineries have found a perfect home in the hot, dry state, with many of the wines produced here going on to reach world class status. The state is greatly helped by the brisk oceanic winds which cool the otherwise hot and dry vineyards, which hold mineral rich soils covering vast areas and featuring many established wineries. The state is split into four main regions, the largest by far being the central valley which stretches over three hundred miles in length.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.
