My first Gewürztraminer! Smells like a riesling, pear and apricot! Refreshing like champagne, has a little of the bubbliness, nice acidity giving it the crispness. Calming and smooth with notes of dried apricot, lychees (which I love!) and a certain mild spice (cannot figure out what..). It has a certain mild bitterness at the end. Medium dry finish and a nice coating in your mouth! I had it with grilled juicy Salmon and it was great!

Simple, off-dry, and very much in the style of the Riesling. The blend includes 9% Muscat Canelli. It's basically a fruity, somewhat sweet tasting room wine.

Rich in flavor, with a tangy balance to the lightly sweet grapefruit, rose petal and peppery spice aromas and flavors. Drink now through 2007.

A pretty wine, with soft fruit and a light touch of pepper on the finish. Drink now.

A popular style, fruity and forward, with the emphasis on citrus, grapefruit and apricot, rather than floral qualities. Sweet fruit set against tangy acid makes it a versatile food wine too.

The Chateau produces some 40,000 cases of this everyday Gewürztraminer, a youthful, spritzy, spicy delight; a tangy wine brimming with crisp flavors of nectarine and orange, enhanced by the addition of 12% Muscat Canelli to the blend. At 12.5% alcohol the wine's residual sugar hovers just under 2%, but the acids keep it lively and quite food-friendly.

This is an easy-drinking style of Gewürztraminer, without any of the floral or soapy scents, or the oily mouthfeel, that characterize more concentrated and richer bottlings. Here instead is a rather simple, roundly fruity white wine, masking its residual sugar in ample natural acids.

Winemaker's Notes:

• Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. • Cool temperatures were maintained throughout the winemaking processto preserve the wine’s fresh, fruity and spicy aromas.

Tasting Notes:

A fan favorite, this Gewürztraminer is an enjoyable wine with exuberant fruit and clove spice. This is a lush style of Gewürztraminer with a lot of floral character, yet it still maintains the grape’s natural crisp character. Try this with Thai food or any cuisine with a little “bite” to it.
