Casa Marin, Casona Vineyard, Gewürztraminer 2014, San Antonio Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: This gewürztraminer is made in a New World style that challenges what you’ve come to expect from Old World gewürz.
This lemon-colored wine has a nose of overripe pear, peach and lychee with lychee underlying the other fruit aromas.
On the palate the dry white is smooth with medium acidity kicking in mid-palate and lasting through to a fruit-forward finish.
An intriguing glimpse into what could be a unique gewürztraminer style emerging in the Americas.
