Gold medal winner ~ Seattle Wine Awards. This is a true Dessert Wine made from 100% Gewürztraminer. Aged 3 months in stainless steel. Residual Sugar is 19%, Alcohol is 10.6%.
Winemaking technique: harvested at 15 degrees, pressed off into stainless tank, fermented with BO213 Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, stopped fermentation at 19 brix, filtered using crossflow, cold and heat stabilized, and then bottled. The honey colored hue in the glass is automatically enticing. Aromas of honey and stone fruit tickle your nose. Tastes of golden raisins, white nectarines, baked pineapple and the spiciness of lychee and mango dance in your mouth. The mouth feel is sweet, yet not overly cloying on your palate. Pair with Brie drizzled with honey, dried fruit, salty crackers and nuts or pour over peach ice cream for a double sweet treat.
