21 Painted Lady Gewurztraminer
Gewürztraminer is a bronze skinned mutation of Savagnin, a very old Eastern European variety with variants planted throughout Alsace, Germany, Austria, and many other Eastern European countries. This fruit comes to us from the Painted Lady Vineyard in Skull Valley, Arizona which is owned and farmed by Jodi Padgett and Fiona Reid, two close friends of ours. The grapes were pressed whole cluster and pumped directly to stainless steel where they enjoyed a long, cold ferment. A bit riper than previous vintages, this Gewürztraminer has beautiful green melon, white lily, quince, Asian pear and mineral characters. Enjoy it young and fresh with your favorite seafood dishes.
