Back in October the Toledo Wines and Vines tasting team did a tour of the Finger Lakes. One of the most enjoyable wineries we visited was Keuka Spring Vineyard. You can read about our visit here.
We were delighted to read that the 2008 Keuka Springs Vineyard Gewurztraminer was named the white wine Sweepstakes winner in the annual San Francisco Chronicle wine Competition. About 60 judges tasted wine from all over the country with 4,913 wine entries from 23 states.
Gewürztraminer is one of our favorite wines. You should check out the recent feature we did on Gewurztraminer.
We were captivated by the 2008 Keuka Springs Gewurztraminer. We said, “First out of the chute was a double-gold medal winner, the 2008 Gewurztraminer. Green Dragon always goes straight for the medals (like a moth to the flame) and her instincts were right on target in this case. “Wow” was the consensus on this one – perhaps the best Gerwurz of our trip. Floral notes with a rich body. It was also the first Gerwurz I’ve tasted with a caramel tones.”
Congratulations to Keuka Springs!
