Here is a bright, spicy, floral, vivid example of Washington Gewürztraminer. It's fresh as a spring breeze, clean and fruity, but substantial, with defining flavors of citrus rind, mint and pineapple. There is just a hint of the soapy, floral side of the grape, but the wine has substance and weight and it lingers beautifully.
