2002 Stony Hill Gewurztraminer

Vintage:   Wine:

The 2002 vintage of Gewurztraminer is just absolutely enchanting because of its intense yet delicate aromas and flavors. They remind you of scented roses and grapefruit and bring the wine a pleasing balance between fruit and a bit more acid than last year, topped off by a hint of flintiness from our Stony Hill soils. This wine is made dry with no residual sugar, and we would pair it with little spiced pork dumplings, a David Gingrass specialty at Hawthorne Lane Restaurant.
