Snoqualmie Nearly Naked Gewürztraminer 2006
REGION: Columbia Valley, Washington
From the folks at Snoqualmie, their 'Nearly Naked' designation indicates that minimal non-organic production methods are used--in other words, the grapes are organic (though not certified) and as much as possible, they've tried to let the grapes do all the work. And, as many certified organic wines die on your palate before they've fully evolved, I think they have made the right decision. This wine is both delicate and unctuous. A lovely orange blossom bouquet is punctuated with shots of fragrant spice. In true Gewurz style, the floral and spice notes are layered with juicy fruit viscosity that clings to your taste buds, bursting with ripe stone fruit flavors. A refreshingly crisp mineral finish adds polish and dimension. We took this when invited to dinner with some friends--they prepared a sumptuous Indian dinner for us and the Nearly Naked Gewurztraminer was the perfect complement to every dish.
I found mine at Whole Foods, but they have a retail distribution page on their site that is fairly up-to-date. Snoqualmie Winery
