The write up mentions sweetness, but no mention of residual sugar. Anyone know just how sweet this is?

It's awesome. I first tried a Gewurtz at a wine festival in NJ. It's got a nice crispness to it, not very sweet but also not too dry. Similar to a viognier, except not so...I guess thick would be the word.

My wife and I love it, it goes very well with light flavored foods.

That's all I've got, forgive my lack of technical wine knowledge. It's a good wine, everyone should buy some.

Are you talking about the cultivar or this wine in particular? I'm concerned by the description of sweet (fruit sweet or RS sweet).

I don't know this one in particular. I just know I've tried several Gewurtz from several wineries.

What's RS sweet?

Agree...need to know more. I like semi-dry with that grapefruit note to it. Goes GREAT with Sushi and a few other meals we like. Stating something is "thick" sounds like it is sweet.

I guess it is time to hit the vineyard's website before deciding.

Ah, gotcha. I love gewurztraminer too!

RS is residual sugar. Sometimes, either by winemaker decision or chance conditions not mitigated, the yeast won't finish off all of the sugars available to it in the must. The sweetness with which you end up is detectable in the wine after a certain point, and it's usually just a blunt sweetness. Fruit sweet would be more of something that appears in a dry (less than 0.2% RS) wine that still gives the idea of the sweetness due to the impressions carried by those fruit flavors.

I prefer gewurztraminer to be dry to off dry and as floral as possible. Even fruit sweet worries me, as G is an aroma driven wine, and low fermentation temps help to achieve this - as opposed to higher temps for fruity characters.

Edit: floral/spice aroma driven

Yes, you will love this wine..It comes from a vineyard that won the first "100" for Syrah in the state of Washington and we now have 5 more recent accolandes in Wine Spectator this month. Enjoy!!

Not sweet. I'd call 'off-dry'. A subtle, approachable, food-friendly Gewurtztraminer. Not super acidic, soft and mellow.

The grapes are estate grown. The now is brilliant spice of Gewurz., honeysuckle passion flower and orange blossoms. The palate explodes with pineapple and tangerines.
You will love it!!!

Try paring this wine with mild cheese, Asian foods or pork for a delicious combination!!!
