With the fall fast-approaching, I know many people do turn to Gewurztraminer because of its ability to blend-in well when you have a bounty of food at the table such as on Thanksgiving. This little gem from Watermill is easily one of the best new-world Gewurztraminer’s I’ve had.

Taste: This is the most interesting Gewurztraminer I’ve ever had from Washington fruit – it’s bone dry and could easily be blind-tasted for an Alsace version. Good acids and minerality for days that combine with enough fruit to make it a stellar glass of vino.
