2019 Gewürztraminer (Foris)
Foris, Dry Gewürztraminer, Rogue Valley, Oregon 2019100% Gewürztraminer LYCHEE & KEY LIME, ROSEWATER & SPICE, FULL YET FRESH This impeccably balanced Gewürz comes to us from some of the variety’s oldest vines in Oregon (~45 years, in fact!) and features one of the most balanced combinations of lusciousness and liveliness that we’ve had the pleasure of sinking our teeth into lately. Bone dry and boasting terrific acidity, this is a spicy, food-friendly dream (yet one that’s just as apt as a cocktail hour delight). Lying over two hundred miles south of the more familiar vineyard sites of Willamette, Foris’s Rogue Valley locale rises fifteen hundred feet above sea level and provides the perfect “alpine” environment for Alsatian-inspired pursuits. Serving Suggestion: Yellow Thai curry w/ sweet potato, scallions, & asparagus. Peking duck w/ stir fried long beans, shallots, & five spice.
