Banyan, Gewürztraminer, 2022, 750ml


In most cases, California is simply too warm to turn Gewürztraminer into the zippy beast we love from those sub-alpine regions of Europe. Banyan’s an exception: it comes from a cool Monterey vineyard and is intentionally picked early enough to keep it charged with acidity. Made by our friend (and star Cali winemaker) Kenny Likitprakong with his dad Somchai, and designed to pair perfectly with spicy Thai and Chinese cuisine.  Subtle scents of jasmine, lychee, and dried mango permeate the nose, while flavors of green papaya, honeysuckle and apple are adrift on the palate.
