The 2017 Gewürztraminer, a wine Red Newt and owner David Whiting have made since the 1980s, was sourced from Nutt Road Vineyard. It comes in with five grams of sugar, 5.3 of total acidity and 14% alcohol. The winery says it is picked entirely based on flavor ripeness to bring out “a rich, dry style.” Whew. This is very aromatic, classic for the grape, but invigorating in its exuberance, nonetheless. Spice, lychees and all that aromatic jazz make this a fine representation of the grape at a very nice price. It should age pretty well too (see the note on the library wine, the 2008). There were 341 cases produced.
