2016 Dry Gewürztraminer
- 91 points - Best Buy - #35 in top 100 - Wine Enthusiast
This outstanding wine opens up beautifully with ample aeration and is true to variety without giving the impression of cheap perfume, emphasizing spice over powdery scents and showing plenty of ripe fruit, from Asian pear, to pineapple to jicama. -Paul Gregutt, October 2017
Delicate aromas of rose petal, citrus blossom and cardamom follow with avors of white peach, Asian pear and juicy pineapple that are broad, full-bodied and palate coating...building to an intense finish that is both bold and refreshing.
ABOUT THIS WINE
With original planting dating back to 1974, Foris is a steward to some of the oldest Gewürztraminer vineyards in Oregon. Gewürztraminer can be fickle to grow and to capture the exotic spice and perfume that is imbedded in the vibrant pink berries as it is transformed into wine. is is especially true when producing a dry style of Gewürztraminer, for which Foris is renowned.
