2012 Stony Hill Gewurztraminer

The quantity may change, and dramatically, but the quality never!  Our 2012 Gewurztraminer is floral elegance in a bottle.  It's and intensely aromatic wine with hints of honeysuckle and citrus, and on the tongue it has a bright cirtus taste, some say grapefruit, some say orange peel.  This lively mouth feel is followed by a generous viscosity on the finish, which is surprising for so young a wine.
