2016 Gewürztraminer

 

100% Gewürztraminer from Oak Ridge Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge AVA (WA).  We destemmed the fruit and let it ferment on the skins for about fifteen days before pressing off, where it picked up some really lovely black tea notes and started smelling like Japanese sweet potatoes and roses.  Once pressed, the wine rested in stainless for seven months before bottling.
