Screams with bright aromas of lychee, ginger, citrus and rose. The palate is firm, crisp, and full with flavors of red grapefruit, lemon and lime zest.

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. Gewürztraminer is among the most aromatic grape varietals on earth, and this 2015 screams with bright aromas of lychee, ginger, citrus and rose. The palate is firm, crisp, and full with flavors of red grapefruit, lemon and lime zest.
Food Pairing Notes

Production Notes
The 2015 vintage had the warmest temperatures and least amount of rainfall in the winery’s history. Despite the lack of rainfall, the timing of the growth of the vines was perfect. Bud break began in the last week of February, and there were very few incidents of frost which led to a slightly earlier bloom. June was sunny and warm followed by warmer than average July and August months. The grapes were harvested on August 24th, 2015.
Vineyard Notes
The Santa Ynez Valley i s 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.
