Tasting Notes

The 2016 Dry Gewurztraminer from Claiborne & Churchill once again captures the aromas of fresh lychee and resin, backed by hints of citrus to create sesty and spicy flavors. Made with grapes sourced from Viento Vineyard up in Monterey County, the Gewurztraminer thrives in the cool climate, coastal fog, and afternoon winds. On the palate it shows juicy pear, stone fruit and citrus peel that play off one another. Since the grapes had a longer hang time and were picked slighly less ripe compared to previous vintages, this wine boasts a refreshing acidity, followed up with its famously dry finish. Crack open a bottle with spicy cuisine or cellar it for a few years.

    Gewurz this good should come with a warning label! "Caution - May be habit forming!" I've yet to become a huge fan of white wines, but when I do find one I like, it's very likely that it will be a little dry, a little floral, with noticeable fruit, juicy acidity, and enjoyable minerality. This is all of the above in an inexpensive package. I opened this just the other day and it just kept getting more and more expressive as the time went on. A wonderful, expressive wine that's worth every penny!
