Weisinger Family Winery, Estate Gewürztraminer 2020, Rogue Valley, Oregon
Tasting Note: An orange gewürztraminer that is vibrant from old, own-rooted vines that were planted in 1975.
Medium-intensity orange in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of green apple, green table grape, white peach, lychee, blossom and orange citrus zest.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied gewürztraminer has medium-intensity, orchard-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a blossom-infused, medium finish.
The wine is steely in texture with a good balance between the fruit and acid structure.
