Keuka Spring Gewürztraminer 2015: $13 Very Good

The Keuka Spring Gewürztraminer (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $13 [Very Good] is a solid, flavorful, well-balanced, and easy-drinking Gewürztraminer.  Sweet and juicy rather than spicy, it is a flexible wine and can be sipped or served with food.  It is an excellent value.

Medium lemon in color, there is a smattering of little bubbles in the glass.  Sweet & ripe aromas of pear, peaches in syrup, lychee and light peppery spice are weighty and attractive.  Medium bodied, off-dry to medium dry, mouth filling, with a touch of spritz, the KS is well balanced.  Solid flavors of pear, canned peaches, ginger, butterscotch and peppery spice have very good weight and intensity.  The finish is balanced, lightly spicy, with very good length.  August 2016
