Chateau Ste. Michelle Gewurztraminer 2006 wine review by (PB)


The Gewurztraminer grape (pronounced Guh-VERTS-tra-MEE-ner) has to be just the best all time summer quaffer.

This one by Ste. Michelle is typical of the varietal (in the American style) where it is almost clear, bursting with big pear aromas in the nose with a fresh and crisp palate exhibiting peaches and pears all over. It is fairly simple but tasty and lingers with gentle fruit. All of the American Gewurz's tend to run in the $8-$10 range.

Raise a glass again and again.
