Covey Run Gewürztraminer Columbia Valley 2008
I think the lychee actually made this not taste as good. But it's unique, it's just has a little bite to it.
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.

External Reviews for Covey Run Gewürztraminer Columbia Valley
Lightly sweet, with distinctive peppery, nutmeg-scented grapefruit and quince flavors, finishing with a gentle texture. Drink now.
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.
Off-dry and effusively fruity, with focused pear and floral flavors, balancing nicely on the finish. Drink now.
Yet another standout effort from this value producer. Clean, penetrating and varietal with layered, spicy fruit - lemon, lime, mint, anise, stone and earth in a marvelously complex array of flavors.
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.
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.
