One of the most aromatic grape varietals in the world, our 2014 showcases vibrant flavors and aromas of lemon zest, lychee, ginger, and red grapefruit. This wine is balanced and refreshing.

Winemaker Notes
A cool-climate varietal by design, the Gewürztraminer grown on our estate benefits from the gentle slope of a western hillside which allows the cool breezes of the nearby Pacific Ocean to moderate daytime temperatures. True to its reputation as one of the most aromatic grape varietals in the world, our 2014 showcases vibrant flavors and aromas of lemon zest, lychee, ginger, and red grapefruit.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is balanced and refreshing and pairs perfectly with grilled halibut.

Production Notes
The Santa Ynez Valley is located just two hours north of Los Angeles and five hours south of San Francisco, adjacent the cold Pacific Ocean. With the greatest concentration of wineries in Santa Barbara County - roughly 18% of its total land planted to vineyards - it is among the favorite weekend destinations for wine aficionados in the Central Coast region. 2014 was another vintage of both high quality and quantity of fruit. We had an early bud break, which began in the last week of February, and a warm spring that led to slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. Few incidents of frost and a warmer than average summer allowed the grapes to ripen at an optimal pace. We harvested the fruit on September 11th, 2014.
