Introducing our 2023 Gewürztraminer, revitalized and bursting with bold flavors! While this wine is an absolute joy to savor independently, its true magic unfolds when paired with the perfect culinary companions. It features crisp, effervescent notes of lychee and citrus, making it a sublime match for a wide array of Asian dishes. Its inherent profile of baking spices not only complements these cuisines but has also justifiably earned it a coveted spot at your Thanksgiving table.

Vineyard Notes:

The 2023 growing season began earlier than 2022 but all our vineyards dodged a late spring frost that could've spelled trouble. Instead, it beame a banner year. Total growing degree days came in a mere 1% above 2022, but the heat came mostly during the heart of the season, when the days are long and the vines can make the best use of it. The big difference between the rainfall in '22 and '23, however, came in the number of hours we received rainfall: 60 fewer hours of rainfall, or about a 20% drop from 2022. That was a huge factor in 2023 turning in some of the cleanest, ripest grapes we've ever harvested.

2023 set a new record for tons of grapes harvested--and quality metrics were on par with the 2021 vintage, which produced outstanding wines from top to bottom. It wasn't uncommon for fruit to come off the vine between 21-22 degrees Brix and, for the most part, with pHs exactly where we want them.
