Food Pairings for Hook & Ladder Gewürztraminer Russian River Valley
This was part of a Hook and Ladder food and wine pairing dinner. Smells of fresh lychee. This off dry Gewurzt has good acidity with juicy lychee and crunchy cantaloupe. Medium bodied, this had a slight bitter ends which reminds me of grape seed. The pairing of tart with lime was great and brought out the butter smoothness of both the scallop and wine.

Grapefruit+ soda! Lightly effervescent, lightly sweet. Reminds me of a Sauvignon Blanc. $18
This was the first Gewurztraminer I tried while at Tasting Room (Uptown Park). After my second bottle, the initial love wasn't as strong. It's still a grape variety I enjoy drinking because of how light the flavor is.
Really nice wine. Bright pale gilt in color, with a slightly thick texture that clings to the glass. Loads of pineapple and apple in the aromas, both of which are echoed in the palate. The pineapple is very interesting, and turns to almost a coconutty, honeyed note on the finish. Nice notes of petrol as the wine opened, which I've never smelt in a domestic version of this wine. Great with green thai curry.
