Columbia Crest Gewürztraminer Columbia Valley 2011
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.
Light and fruity, very drinkable. Goes well with mild cheeses. Good value for money.
This Muscat is drier than most at around 1-2% RS. It has nice orange blossom and lychee fruit in the nose. Excellent value. Moderate extract. My rating - 86
3% residual sugar. Papayas and bananas on the nose. Nicely priced for the quality. A delicate floral finish. Good
External Reviews for Columbia Crest Gewürztraminer Columbia Valley
Soft in texture, with a delicate feel to the grapefruit and honey flavors, lingering gently on the lightly sweet finish. Drink now.
With just 11% alcohol and an impressive production of 20,000 cases, this will have wide appeal. It’s a flurry of pleasant, quaffable flower and peach notes. There is just enough residual sugar to give the finish a pulled taffy quality.
A light straw color with delicate aromas of spice and lychee flavors with hints of cinnamon and flowers gives way to a good balance between sweetness and acidity on the palate. The Columbia Winery 2007 Gewurztraminer is an excellent match for fresh fruit and cheeses as well as complementing simple fish and chicken dishes and recipes that include oriental flavors and curry.

This is one of Columbiarsquo;s strengths, turning out perfectly crafted white wines at budget prices. The Gewurz is off-dry, rich and roundly fruity, loaded with mouthfilling, lipsmacking flavors. Chill it to cut the sweetness and you have the perfect wine for spicy noodle dishes.
This Washington white appeals with its lovely citrus and litchi aromas and flavors, picking up a slight white pepper note on the off-dry finish. A deal at the price. Drink now.
Quite a perfect match for the 2003, this delightful wine remains bracingly fresh and crisp despite its 3.1% residual sugar. Rich and intense, it shows lovely flavors of pink grapefruit, melon and citrus rind. Some stony crispness underlies the fruit, which captures its sweetness without losing its edge. One of the best Gewurzes in the state, if not the country.

Typical Gewurztraminer aromas of orange zest and spice are joined by a lively citrus note and floral lift. Upfront fruit flavors of melons and lime give way to a pink grapefruit essence and finish with bright acidity, balancing the wine’s subtle sweetness.
