Sun Garden Gewurztraminer

Gewürztraminer’s direct and obvious charm has made it a popular varietal in almost every corner of the wine world. In Europe, distinct and interesting wines are Gewürztraminer based wines are produced in Austria, Germany, and northern Italy. The literal translation of the prefix (Gewürz) is ‘spice’, and its suffix (Traminer) refers to the Traminer grape, which was widely grown around the northern Italian town of Tramin until the 16th century. This Gewurztraminer is a delightfully aromatic white wine that is perfect for casual enjoyment or by itself.  Gewürztraminer marries beautifully with rich, fatty dishes like pork and goose or ripe cheeses, as well as with the exotic spices of Moroccan, Indian, and Far Eastern cuisines.

 

Charles and Charles Rose

The 2012 Rosé exhibits a beautiful pink color, tinged with a subtle salmon hue and coppered fuchsia edges. The aromas pop with wild strawberry, rose, cherry, subtle hibiscus and a touch of citrus, with underlying dried herb, crushed gravel and mineral tones. These bright fruit and savory flavors continue through the palate with great acidity that carries into the finish. Our goal is create a balance between fruit, savory and acid notes so that not one element is overly dominant.
