2014 Stony Hill Gewurztraminer

For the 2014 vintage we made 320 cases of Gewurztraminer. This wine went through a second fermentation last winter, which has never happened before, but we are really excited about the results. The wine is still pale straw in color with 12% alcohol, .6% total acidity and a pH of 3.54, all the usual statistics. The difference is in the mouth feel. We found it richer and smoother on the palate than usual with rose petal and nutty aromas and flavors of dried rose petals along with a bit of spice. Winemaker Mike Chelini describes the 2014 Gewurztraminer this way: It has a heavier body than usual, a touch of richness mid palate, and a notable minerality on the finish. Try these interesting new pairing ideas which we think will stand up to the extra weight of this vintage: a Thai red curry or a Moroccan lamb tagine.
