Gold Hill Winery 2011 Gewurztraminer - 86pts
Availability: Direct from winery gate. Website info here
Date Tasted: May 28th, 2012
Tasting Notes: The nose of this crowd-pleasing Gewurztraminer from Gold Hill Winery bursts out of the glass with explosive lychee and apricot fruit and can actually be sensed from several feet away. That's not an official tasting note mind you, just a remarkable feat. The floral, fruity and sweet bouquet is immediately charming and is sure to curl the sides of your mouth. The full-bodied palate doesn't quite match the intensity of the nose and fades a bit early on the finish, yet, the easy-drinking, fruit-forward presentation will keep you reaching for more. Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink 2012-2013.
