2016 Stony Hill Gewurztraminer

This cooler climate grape has found a sweet spot at Stony Hill with our rocky soils, northeast exposure, and higher elevation where there’s always a slight breeze to cool the hot summer sun.  Our 2016 vintage has one of the most powerful and aromatic noses we have seen in many years; perfumed with lilies and white peach.  For such a wonderfully intense nose the initial palate is surprisingly delicate and subtle, yet still retains the depth you expect from Stony Hill.  Lychee and hints of spice play off a pleasing weight and a long finish highlighted by Meyer lemon. Gewurztraminer is always a great choice to serve with big holiday meals.  With just 12% alcohol and its bone-dry, palate-cleansing qualities, it can cut right through all the richness of a turkey dinner.
