With 14% Gewürztraminer in the blend, and almost 2% residual sugar, this is a popular tasting-room wine. It's got a lightly pleasing streak of tea, and if you like a little lemon in your ice tea you'll like this wine. Clean and showing surprising length, it should be chilled down to boost its backbone.
