Our off dry 2015 Gewürztraminer is 100% from the old vines at Ventana Vineyard in the Arroyo Seco AVA of Monterey. Typical for that area, wind, fog, and cool temperatures predominate year round. The vineyard is carefully farmed to assure the specific ripeness, a balance of sugar and acidity, that we are looking for. A long growing season and temperatures that rarely rise above 80˚F create an ideal spot for such an intensely aromatic wine.
Once at the winery, grapes are pressed then cold settled for 72 hours before the fermentation is allowed to begin. Fermentation lasted 42 days at 48˚F.
A refreshing bright wine with floral aromatics.
