Tasting Notes

An Alsatian hommage of 78% Riesling and 22% Gewürztraminer from Cayuga Lake's Auten Vineyard. Fermented separately, the Gewürztraminer sees 4 days of skin contact, and is blended with the Riesling after fermentation completes. This a dry medium-bodied, aromatic, fresh, and vibrant sparkling white with citrus and tropical aromas. Pair with fish tacos and mango habañero salsa.

Staff Pick Notes

Bloomer Creek's Tanzen Dame Edelzwicker Pét-nat is a wine of substance. Literally. Pick up the bottle, shake up the sediment, and notice that this wine isn't just cloudy, it's darn near opaque. Beyond appearance, the wine opens with a funky nose of sour beer and a hint of tropical fruit. The palate is thick and chewy, with flavors of apple skins and melons. It's a great accompaniment for pub dishes like nachos and wings. For nearly 25 years, Bloomer Creek has been one of the American trailblazers in organic vineyard farming and winemaking. Like all of their wines, this sparkler is innovative, quirky, and most importantly, a lot of fun.

Though it's now cultivated worldwide, Riesling is nearly synonymous with German wine, and that country's winemakers have lately begun to produce some very exciting dry versions. They are careful to retain the...

Gewürztraminer

You won't likely forget your first "Gewürz," as they're some of the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. They are usually heavily perfumed with rich lychee and rose aromas. The variety is cultivated all over the world, but the best examples tend to come from Alsace: these are full-bodied wines with a golden color. The pink-skinned Gewürztraminer does best in cooler climates,...
