2016 Tyee Estate Gewurztraminer

$19.00

Winemaker’s Notes

Tyee Wine Cellars specializes in Dry Gewürztraminer. Delicious with honeysuckle, jasmine, orange blossom and holiday spice. Made from dry-farmed, own-rooted, 25 plus year old vines from Tyee Estate Vineyard and younger grafted estate vines.  Only 200 cases produced.

 

Tyee Estate Vineyard

Tyee Wine Cellars is located on our Family Farm founded over 130 years ago in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Gewürztraminer vines were planted starting in the 1980's in Tyee's Estate Vineyard. Five family generations have revered the farm's open spaces, woodlands, wetlands and streams while growing crops in a sustainable manner.  Good wines remember the grapes of their origin.  We believe sharing Tyee Estate Wines with you is perhaps the most sublime expression of the land.
