Red Tail Ridge, Gewürztraminer 2014, Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes, New York
Tasting Note: This pale, lemon-colored gewürztraminer has an aromatic nose of red rose petals, lemon citrus, peach stone fruit and lychee with clove baking spice.
On the palate, this dry white is light-to-medium bodied, with medium acidity kicking in at the 75% point of the taste petering out in a long finish.
This is an example of a more delicate, refreshing and lighter gewürztraminer style being produced in the New York Finger Lakes.
There is a lot to like here; this would be a perfect gewürztraminer to introduce a friend to this aromatic grape varietal.
Bottle Note: We are the first LEED Gold certified green winery in New York State. Using geothermal energy, we have reduced our energy consumption over 50%, while sustaining the quality of our vineyards and wines. Cheers!
