2014 Washington Yakima Valley Gewurztraminer – Talk about tropical! This beautiful Gewurz exhibits a classic aromatic profile of ginger, honey and honeysuckle. Swirling this wine in your glass, you’ll see a warm golden color reminiscent of sunsets in Bali. The palate explodes with ripe flavors of lychee, pear and cantaloupe. The level of residual sugar (~12g/L RS) brings the profile into perfect balance between fruity and sweet, without being flabby.
The label art for this wine was created by Jersey City street artist Sam, aka Bed Bugs in Love. It combines an abstract depiction of famed astrophysicist Carl Sagan with imagery of space satellites. Carl Sagan is highly revered by scientists worldwide for his pioneering work on scientific communication and as a critical thinking advocate. Carl was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.
