2017 Montinore Estate Reserve Gewürztraminer
Empty bottle weight: 18.9 ounces / 537 grams
Certified organic wine made with biodynamic grapes, indigenous yeast
Gewürztraminer is often sweet but, being a versatile grape, winemakers can coax it into a dry style. Winemaker Stephen Webber successfully did just that! This dry Gewürztraminer is unique and a real treat to drink if you can track some down (production is limited).
Very floral aromas rose from my glass as I swirled this wine! Along with flowers, I smelled mineral notes of gravel dust, tart green apples, and freshly grated ginger.
This medium-bodied Gewürztraminer is very dry with abundant minerality and bright acidity! Flavors of apricots, apple turnovers, and lemons enveloped my entire mouth, then culminated into a pleasantly spicy finish.
Food pairing suggestions:
It’s a very food-friendly wine so don’t hesitate to get creative with your pairings! Some ideas are crisp scallop salad, apple gruyere grilled cheese sandwiches, choucroute garni.
