A total of 4.67 tons of estate grown grapes was harvested by hand on October 18, 2018. The grapes had 23 brix natural sugar, 5.0 g/l TA and a 3.37 pH. The grapes were destemmed, cold soaked overnight and then pressed and inoculated with yeast. A cool fermentation lasted for 14 days at 58-60 degrees. The wine was cold and heat stabilized and then filtered and bottled on May 21, 2019. It has 6.0 g/l TA, a 3.35 pH, 0% residual sugar and 13.9% alcohol. 261 cases produced.

This is a beautiful and nuanced vintage of Gewürztraminer. Currently, I suggest opening this wine a few hours prior to consuming to allow the wine to “open up” and better reveal its aromatics and flavors. You’ll then be treated to a complexity of scents and flavors: pear, apple, pineapple, apricot, white pepper and ginger alongside some subtle floral character. The wine is weighty on the palate and while the alcohol content is rather high, it doesn’t overpower the palate. It has a long, lingering and delightful finish. Pair this wine with roasted turkey, winter squash, duck confit, Munster and other soft cheeses, and cassoulet. Enjoy now and at least through 2025.

We enjoyed this wine today while visiting the winery and sitting on the deck overlooking Keuka Lake. It’s deliciously dry with fruity overtones that pair well with mildly spiced foods. A wonderful summer wine! We will be purchasing more!
