2009 Columbia Winery Gewürztraminer

Intriguing nose: Sour apple, pear, a bit floral. Delicate, but with firm rich aromas. This Gewürz tastes like a cool crisp pear dipped in spicy honey. It's got the bright acidity of a sour apple, but also a nice off-dry sweetness to smooth the mouthfeel. We found it to be a bit one note, although it is pretty tasty--this skewed our rating for the better. There's a little heat on the backend that we didn't like. This washington white is a pretty good value. If you're into off-dry rieslings, and haven't tried a Gewürztraminer, try this one!

Body: Medium
Approx. Cost: $14
Food Pairing: Spicy Thai Food


Love Gewürztraminer and for the price seems like a pretty good one!
