Union Sacre Belle du Nuit 2019 Gewurztraminer, Arroyo Seco

Union Sacre Belle du Nuit 2019 Gewurztraminer, Arroyo Seco

Gewürztraminer is difficult to capture, on the vine it will go from pitch perfect to over-ripe in a number of hours. As wine, it has an amazingly wide breadth of characteristics that it can display, it can be spice driven, oral, sweet, bone chillingly dry, clear, orange or pink. When it is done well it is a thing of rare, fleeting beauty that will last decades, much like the memory of a beautiful woman met once and disappeared.
