Single Vineyard Series
Light salmon pink color, bright and delicate on the nose, with floral and tropical notes and aromas of strawberry and pink lemonade. It’s vibrant on the palate with a refreshing finish.
Gewurztraminer is most predominately grown in Alsace, France where it originates. Clarksburg region in California creates a different, but wonderful climate for the Gewurztraminer grape. These beautiful speckled pink grapes were sourced from Grand Island Vineyard, owned and managed by Salman Farms in Walnut Grove, CA. The vineyard features a California sprawl trellis system, where the vines are trained to reach straight up to the sky. Soil is dark brown delta soil. The vineyard itself is only a few hundred yards from the Sacramento River.
Grapes were hand harvested in the morning and whole cluster pressed to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank. The juice was racked and fermented cold in a stainless steel tank. After a long fermentation, the tank was chilled down to “arrest” the fermentation to leave a small percentage of residual sugar, which gives the wine a semi sweetness.
