White Wine by Banyan from Central Coast, California. 2017 marks another new beginning for the Banyan Gewurztraminer. After years of service, Ventana was finally ripped out and we once again moved to a new vineyrard. The 2017 is 100% from Rancho Llegado, a vineyard that comprised part of our 2015 wine when yields were very low and Ventana did not produce enough. Like Ventana and typical for the area, wind, fog, and cool temperatures predominate year round. Being farmed by the same person, the Rancho is also carefully farmed to assure the specific ripeness, a balance of sugar, and the acidity, that we are looking for. A long growing season and temperatures that rarely rise above 80 F create an ideal spot for such an intensely aromatic wine. Serve chilled between 2-5 C. Acid will be firmer at cooler temperatures, but the aromatics will be more pronounced when warmer. A great match for anything spicy especially Thai, Vietnamese, and Indian foods.
