Looks like a January 2012 trip to the Finger Lakes in NY state is leading to an early summer of love of NY state Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Rkatsiteli. I tend to be a seasonal wine drinker (more reds in winter, more whites and my favorite dry rosés in summer) so we’re chilling the wonderful whites I purchased way back in January and enjoying them now.
This Glenora Wine Cellars 2010 Gewürztraminer has a lovely aromatic nose, a bit of acidity, with slight spice and sweetness in the finish. We paired it with New England-style shrimp rolls, potato salad and a spicy cole slaw. Memorial Day weekend perfection.
Appellation: Finger Lakes
