Stylistically this wine is very much in the style of the dry Gewürztraminers from the Alsace region of France.

This elegant, crisp, refreshing Gewürztraminer is a style aside from the usually flamboyant Gewürztraminers that are produced in California. Its grace is first detected in the brilliant pale straw color of the wine that sparkles across the glass. For those familiar with the famed Alsatian Gewurztraminers, you will find a kindred spirit in this wine’s aromas. Aromas of orange blossom, stone fruits leaning toward white peach, honeysuckle, slate, and distinctively high tones of mineral rise from the glass. On the palate one feels the crisp acidity that will make this wine a beautiful accompaniment to many foods. Flavors of melon, sweet citrus and notes of fresh summer peaches are enveloped in a wrap of mineral notes. This is elegant and refined Gewürztraminer that justly portrays the Floodgate Vineyard and the Russian River Valley as a safe haven for this variety.
