Dry Sparkling Gewürztraminer 2009

Dry, crisp and delicious; bright fruit flavors with a creamy yet clean finish.

Tasting Notes

Dry, crisp, and delicious, our 2009 Sparkling Gewurz has an electrically light color with tiny, tight billowing bubbles and alight dosage (sugar added back). Exuding wonderful flavors of fresh red apple, lemon zest, citrus, and guava with a creamy, yet delightfully clean finish. Dedicated to my sparkling Mom, Virginia.

Winemaker Notes

This fruit comes from the south block of our 34-year-old Gewurztraminer vineyard on the "Home Ranch" Estate, where it was picked early as to preserve the very crisp, natural acidity as well as the fresh green and red citrus notes. For a dry sparkling, it exhibits an amazing floral aroma while still maintaining the fine earthy notes from sitting surlees for over 14 month. This unique Sparkling is crafted in the Method Champagne.
