From the bottle: "Our off-dry Gewurztraminer offers beautiful floral, citrus and lychee fruit aromas with slightly spicy, citrusy flavors." We would agree, it was very tasty - by itself I'm sure, but we had it with chicken.

A floral nose with lychee nuts and citrus fruits leads to a similarly-flavored, semisweet palate. Blending in 11% Muscat Canelli enhances the natural fruitiness of this wine, which is a very pleasant quaffer by itself or with spicy Asian food. Drink over the next year.

Part of the Canandaigua Brands portfolio, this Yakima Valley winery makes a full line of varietally sound, fruit-driven wines. This vivacious Gewurz is bursting with floral and citrus scents and ripe, semitropical flavors. It's a great example of how well this overlooked grape does in Washington. And it is a slamdunk match for spicy-sweet Pacific Rim noodle dishes and satays, with just a splash of Muscat Canelli in the blend to bring out the orange blossom and tangerine flavors.

Fresh and forward, bursting with floral and citrus scents and ripe, semitropical flavors. A splash of Muscat Canelli in the blend brings up the orange blossom and tangerine flavors.

Lightly sweet, with distinctive peppery, nutmeg-scented grapefruit and quince flavors, finishing with a gentle texture. Drink now.

Though it is almost pure Gewürzt (just a splash of Muscat for the sweet aromas), this does not show the sensuous floral perfume of the grape. It's decidedly citrus-flavored, specifically grapefruit, along with green apple and pineapple.

Though not quite up to the exalted standard of the awesome 2004, this excellent aromatic white wine deftly mixes floral scents with dusty talcum powder and spicy citrus. A seamless blend of grapefruit, citrus and green apple fruit is lifted with varietal spice and perfume; the wine has good body too. Sounds like a hot date, which it is, ready for any kind of saucy Asian noodle dish you care to throw at it. Just not up to the overall elegance and polish of the '04.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The nose is very floral, perfumey and lemony, and the spice and lychee flavors come through clean on the palate, making it the perfect wine to quaff ice cold on the patio on a sunny summer afternoon.
