About This Product :

The Grape: 100% Gewürztraminer

The Appellation: Nahe, Germany

The Wine: Perfumed with scents of lychee and blossoms, this off-dry delight boasts zesty allspice flavor that mingles with hints of peach and mango. Medium-bodied with an optimal balance between rich fruit flavors and sunny acidity.

The Winemaking: Despite its very German sounding name, Gewürztraminer accounts for less than 1% of Germany’s total vineyard area. (Even less than Bacchus?! and Regent?!) Still, it has been grown here for centuries and most plantings are concentrated in Pfalz, which borders the French region of Alsace, arguably this ancient grape’s modern spiritual home. Thanks to their sheltering proximity to the Vosges Mountains, both regions are warm and dry, but Pfalz is warmer, and here Gewürztraminer happily ripens into its distinctively pungent and exotic self. Moselland growers are scattered throughout the region, and this provides the flexibility to produce compelling wines with consistency and quality in every vintage. Grapes are harvested separately, according to vineyard site, and must weight. Lots are vinified individually in small stainless-steel tanks under temperature control using selected yeast. The final blend for Sun Garden is assembled by Moselland’s head wine maker, and the wine is stored in tank until bottling, so only the freshest wine is shipped to the market.

The Pairing: Perfect for casual enjoyment with meals or by itself. Goes well with spicy cuisine. Serve well chilled.

The Winery: Moselland
