Extended skin contact lends an amber hue and musky exotic tones to this blend of aromatic Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris grapes. It's fascinatingly complex, suggesting glimmers of spice and bright apple and pear flavors, baked clay and dark herbs. Brisk acidity lends firm structure to the midpalate. It's a delightful wine that would pair well with everything from trout to pork ribs.
