2017 Dry Gewürztraminer

*91 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Our first wine from last fall’s harvest to be bottled and released, this signature wine of Claiborne & Churchill is welcome indeed, since our supply of the 2016 is all but gone. At this point in its young life, it is light straw in color and boasts bright tropical notes of pineapple and guava. The lively, crisp-apple acidity on the finish provides a nice balance to a lush and creamy texture on the palate. This is our thirty-fifth consecutive vintage of Dry Gewürztraminer, and one of the best!
