2010 Hermann J. Wiemer Finger Lakes Gewurztraminer

SKU #1116665 Wine & Spirits

 Pretty scents of rose petal and litchi give way to a palate experience that’s long both on sweetness and phenolic elements. That sweetness will match a fiery green curry.  (8/ 2012)

Wine Spectator

 Bold and lively, with good grapefruit and lychee notes and a nice oily mouthfeel. This really stretches out, with quince and fig showing on the finish. Drink now. 1,050 cases made.  (4/ 2012)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gewurztraminer

- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gewürztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

New York

- Grape production is a significant part of this North Eastern state's agricultural economy. New York produces more wine than any other state in the US, with the exception of California. The wine market in New York City is also one of the world's most competitive, and this has inspired the growth of many small, private wineries throughout the state's producing regions (Finger Lakes, Lake Erie, and the Hudson River). Another interesting development is the introduction of an entirely new region along the eastern end of Long Island.
