Hook & Ladder
2012 Russian River Valley Gewürztraminer
California: Sonoma County: Russian River Valley
We love Hook & Ladder Vineyards and Winery. No matter which of their wines we try, we never fail to come away from our Tasting Panel impressed. Today’s 2012 Russian River Valley Gewürztraminer is most assuredly another stunner.
We don’t offer many Gewürztraminers, which should tell you that today’s wine is more than worthy of your attention. Off-dry, with pleasant fruity flavors of white peach, apricot, and lychee, today’s gem is the perfect meal companion.
Please accept our boldest recommendation for today’s gem.
A delicate very light straw yellow through and through.
Delightfully aromatic, with white peach, lychee, and tangerine shining through. These notes are joined by hints of allspice, incense, honeycomb, and lavender.
Quite the treat on the palate, with fresh fruity notes of white peach, apricot, lychee, and ruby red grapefruit delicately laid overtop honeycomb, toasty brown baking spices, cinnamon, and ginger.
Off-dry and absolutely delightful; be sure to serve well chilled for the best drinking experience.
Tiger prawns, stir-fried with fresh veggies and Hunan 5 Spice.
