Bruce McGuire blends grapes from the Alisos Vineyard and the Curtis Vineyard to create our Gewürztraminer. Located in the Highlands above Los Alamos, Alisos Vineyard has dedicated a portion of their vineyard to the aromatic grape, Gewürztraminer. This vineyard benefits from a cool climate and well drained soil that help retain the spicy aromatics.
This wine was made in the traditional Alsatian method, fermented to dryness.
Winemaker Comments: Alisos Vineyard is one the few vineyars in SB County planted with Gewürztraminer. This intensely aromatic wine was fermented to complete dryness. This makes it very versatile with food. Asian cuisine in general; red curry with duck is a particular favorite.
Tasting Notes: Our 2019 Gewurztraminer is pale lemon in color with aromas of apricot, lemon peel, and lychee. The lychee aroma continues across the palate followed by ripe apricot, ginger and crushed limestone. Medium-bodied with plenty of acidity, this wine finishes smooth and clean, leaving you chasing the next sip. Drink with any fried fish or shellfish, or salads with fresh fruit.
