St. Christopher Gewurztraminer
WHY WE LOVE IT
- The St. Christopher Gewürztraminer is harvested in one of Germany’s premier wine regions, the Rheinhessen.
Varietal Composition: 100% Gewürztraminer
Elaboration: Harvested in the middle of September from 10-year-old vines. 10-day fermentation at 26 degrees Celsius in stainless steel tanks using select yeast.
Tasting Notes: Whiffs of apple, pear, and lemon suggest a shyer aromatic expression, but the palate of this off-dry wine is surprisingly sunny and bright. Fresh tangerine and nectarine flavors are accented by hints of caramel and bee pollen. The finish lingers on a delicately lacy sweetness.
The St. Christopher wines comprise of some of the most exciting, unique and highest quality wines being produced in Germany. St. Christopher offers highly rated Mosel wines like the Top 100 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Spatlese as well well as old German classics likes Zeller Schwarze Katz and Liebfraumilch. Today the wines range from Rheinhessen Gewurztraminer from to Holidays classics like, Glühwein. The St. Christopher project started in 1992 as a collaboration between Manfred Bauer and Gunther Schlink with the idea of sourcing the best Germany has to offer under one brand.
