Columbia Crest Gewürztraminer Columbia Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Columbia Crest:
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

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.

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.

Exotic spice and lychee nut aromas introduce a wine with the ideal balance of acidity and sweetness. The finish is lush and juicy. A terrific companion with Asian foods.

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.

Sweet and silky, with pretty pear, orange and spice flavors that linger effortlessly on the soft finish. Nice affordable introduction to New World Gewürtz. Drink now.

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.
