Amity's dry Gewürztraminer is one of Oregon's finest, and a major strength of the winery. In this new vintage it shows broad and rich flavors, that run the spectrum from floral and spicy to sweetly honeyed. It's dry, make no mistake, but carries an impression of fruit sweetness. The deepening gold color suggests some early oxidation, and the caramel and toasted grain flavors are already at their peak.
