Gilbert Cellars Gewürztraminer 2014

$17.99 (PA tax not included)

90 points, Wine Spectator Magazine

The Gewürtztraminer grape originated in the Alps region of Northern Italy and is famous for making world-class wines in Germany, France, and now – Washington! Juicy and aromatic, this one from Gilbert Cellars will remind you of ripe peaches and lychee fruit.

Description

Thirteen years of making wine and 117 years of farming in Yakima, Washington. When you open a bottle of Gilbert Cellars, we hope it evokes the same sense of place and sense of adventure that we feel when we create it. The Gilbert family legacy is one of commitment, community and adventure, and Gilbert Peak (on the label) is the perfect symbol to celebrate our history and our future.

90 points – Harvey Steiman of the Wine Spectator had the following to say: “Light and refreshing, with well-modulated spice and floral overtones to the lychee and pear flavors, lingering gently. Drink now through 2018.”

With just a hint of sweetness, and a strong backbone of acidity, this Gewurztraminer is a food friendly wine.
