2012 Gewurztraminer
Following harvest, our 2012 Gewurztraminer was de-stemmed and cold soaked for 6 hours and then pressed; the juice was added to barrels and steel tanks for fermentation. This vintage of our Gewurztraminer was also made in an Alsatian style, making this a delightful compliment to Asian dishes and spicier foods, as well as a pleasant wine to enjoy on its own.
