2007 Zmor Gewurztraminer Russian River Valley

If you like your white wine slightly sweet but with an acidic finish and haven’t tried Gewurztraminer, what are you waiting for?   Also, if you are a fan of Thai food, there is no better pairing than Gewurztraminer and Thai.   Try a Gewurz with pad ke mao and it may change your life!

The Zmor is very aromatic.   Rose petal, lychee and grapefruit jump out of the glass.   You would expect this wine to be very sweet, but the finish is quite acidic.   More of the grapefruit and citrus notes come out on the finish.   The alcohol is high on this one – 14.1% – so serve well chilled.   This is an excellent value Gewurztraminer, and it may become my go-to wine to pair with Thai takeout  :-)
