2010 Aristocrat Gewurztraminer
Yes that is right, Idealist Wines has dry Gewurztraminer! In 2010 we seized the opportunity to buy some excellent organically grown Gewurztraminer grapes from Oak Ridge Vineyard. This fruit was top shelf, pampered, and high quality. Like an aristocrat these grapes received care and attention with an envisioned higher purpose.
In 2010 we managed to harvest a few days before frost settled on the vineyard. By beating the frost, we captured the freshness of these grapes. Our goal was to allow the Gewurztraminer to shine through. The resulting wine is dry, with bright acidity, stylistically different than many new world Gewurztraminers. Enjoy this summer sipper. 66 cases produced.
