2007 Umpqua Valley Gewurztraminer

Elkton has proved to be an absolute bullseye for this varietal, sourced from the Bradley Vineyard planted in 1983.  The aromatics are so pure and true to type with wonderful leeche, exotic spices, clove and stick cinnamon, tea roses and mandarin oranges. Upon tasting the wines citrus elements come forward with a rich and supple entry, followed by a long and lingering spicy fruit finish.  This is our sweetest white with 2.5% residual sugar, but the refreshing acidity keeps the whole package in balance.  This is a very versatile food wine and can serve as an aperitif, as a starting course wine with foie gras for instance or find paring with desert.  Of course Thai food is a natural, as is our wonderful local Rouge Creamery blue cheeses.
