Live-certified and salmon safe

This is a perfect example of an Oregon white wine with some age on it! Elkton is a tiny AVA found within the larger Umpqua Valley appellation and the grapes grown there have pretty high acid levels. Acidity is a natural preservation agent, allowing this wine to age beautifully.

It’s got a screwcap too so toss it in your backpack with an icepack to enjoy at the summit of your next hike or on a picnic in the park. So portable and so delicious! Now that Brandborg Vineyard has properly cellared this wine, all you need to do is buy and drink it!

Bouquet:

This dry gewürztraminer smells like sun-ripened casaba melons out in a dusty field and meadow flower honey.

Palate:

I tasted both the honey and melon notes from the aromatics, combined with lychees and ginger snap cookies. It’s got a generous, full mouthfeel with a long, spicy ginger finish.

Food pairing suggestions:

Crab spaghetti with lemon and garlic gremolata, marinated peanut tempeh, artichoke and feta tarts, anything spicy works too!

SRP $20
