Spy Valley 2001 Gewürztraminer (Marlborough)

Best Buy

Veteran winemaker Alan McCorkindale has his own label, sourced largely from the same vineyard, so he knows these grapes. The resulting wine is crisp and refreshing for a Gewürz, a variety that can often get overblown. Peppery, floral scents mingle with green apples, moving smoothly into pineapple, peach and pear fruit flavors. Minty-fresh greens emerge to play a leading role on the long, clean finish. The winery takes its name from a nearby electronic communications interception station, locally nicknamed “Spybase.” Joe Czerwinski
