2016 Gewurztraminer ~ McIvor Vineyard
Gewürztraminer translates literally to "spicy Traminer", a recognition of the often complex, exuberant aromatic character of the wine. McIvor Vineyard is nestled in the foothills of Oregon's Coast Range in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The self-rooted, old vines yield rose-colored clusters of intensely flavored berries. The juice received one week of skin contact before gentle pressing, fermentation and élevage. In the nose, the wine presents exotic fruits, flowers and spices, while on the palate it is dry, surprisingly crisp, with substantial weight and length. A versatile complement to bold foods, including Asian cuisines, which can be challenging for other wines, it is also delightful as an apéritif. Our focus at Martin Woods is artisanally-produced, terroir-driven wines of limited quantity and exceptional quality.
