A perennial fan-favorite, this new release of Gewürztraminer from the Willamette Valley has intense stone fruit and floral aromatics, honeysuckle and a dry finish that matches the layers on layers of fruit. The touch of Pinot Gris gives it some nice minerality and the splash of Müller-Thurgau gives it a little zing of the finish. With such a delicious combination of flavors, it’s no wonder this wine is so popular!
Pairs well with Indian food, Gruyère cheese, and leisurely Sunday brunch.
