Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren

This highly perfumed wine opens with fragrant floral aromas of honeysuckle and white flowers. The inviting notes leads to a flavorful palate with bright fresh stone fruit and subtle spice lingering on the palate.

The wine offers a pleasing sweetness with a nice amount of acidity that gives structure and supports the body to a smooth, well-rounded finish. This wine pairs very well with spicy foods.

Winemaker Note:

Chateau St. Jean Gewurztraminer is made in an off-dry style. After a brief soaking on the skins, the juice was fermented at very low temperatures in small batches for just over one month in temperature-controlled stainless steel vessels.

This retains natural acidity and fragrant varietal character. We stop the fermentation a little early so that the wine offers balance between beautiful aromatics and body.
