This is off dry, low alcohol (11.5%), spiced up with tart acidity and loaded with rich, ripe fruit flavors mixing pears and peaches. Sweet without being sugary, it should appeal to a wide spectrum of wine drinkers, and snap together the flavors of a Thai food. Columbia Crest makes 18,000 cases of this wine.

Off-dry with lemon-drop fruit flavors, a lick of citrus that suggests pear and lime. Though itrsquo;s a fairly simple, fruit-forward wine, it delivers a concentrated burst of fresh, vivid flavor thatrsquo;s missing from most wines in this price range.
The breadth of quality varietals from Washington State is steadily growing. This Gewurz is light and simple but has an incredibly clean, gently sweet tropical fruit character on the nose and palate. The varietalrsquo;s typical soft acidity permits the fruitrsquo;s flesh to dominate. Incredible value.
