Offers an intriguing blend of tropical and floral characteristics. It begins with a lingering rosy perfume, with a hint of banana. Flavors are floral and spicy, anchored by good weight and viscosity.

So rich, so honeyed, with an oily texture, this Gewurz is simply wonderful. It shows powerfully ripe peach, pineapple, pear, honeysuckle, lemon cream and dusty spicebox flavors. With balancing acidity, it's California Gewurz at its most charming.

So pure and refined, this Gewürz shows how great Anderson Valley can ripen the variety. Throw in Handley's deft hand, and you get an immensely flavorful, spicy white wine of tremendous balance and finesse.

Winemaker Milla Handley has a passion for making Gerwurtztraminer, and has received numerous awards for her efforts. The seductive aromas of roses and honeysuckle hits you right from the start. On the palate, you will find luscious flavors of lychee, peach, apricot and tropical fruit. Along with a hint of nutmeg and citrus, this wine just keeps revealing more layers of fruit and spices with each sip. This is a great wine for serving with salads and spicy Thai dishes.

As pretty and polished as California Gewürztraminer gets. Shows fabulous Anderson Valley acidity and minerality undergirding varietal flavors of sweet Asia spices, pears, peaches, limes and honeysuckle flowers. With its dry finish, it's a rich accompaniment to Vietnamese or Thai food.

There's a hint of rose if you search for it, but this is not aggressively floral. Instead, it's fresh, chalky, crisp and clean, like biting into a fresh litchi. Firm acidity drives the wine, cutting right through the fruit to deliver its flavor into the meat of whatever is for dinner - it'd be delicious with Thai-style catfish with ginger.

There's beautiful fruit clarity to this cool gewurztraminer, an exotic flavor like ripe cherimoya and fresh litchi. It feels luscious and gentle in the middle, then constricts around steely acidity, a tense balance that leaves the mouth refreshed. Serve it as you would an Alsace gewurz, with sausages in choucroute.
