Abiqua Wind Vineyard 2013 Gloria Anne Estate Gewürztraminer, Willamette Valley, $12

abiqua-wind-vineyard-gloria-anne-estate-gewurztraminer-2013-labelBest Buy! Grower/winemaker Pete Buffington continues to transform this 11-acre vineyard, first planted in 1978 in the Cascade foothills northwest of Oregon’s state capital. He makes this Gewürz as a tribute to his mother, and it’s filled with pleasing aromas and flavors of Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, grapefruit, melted butter, baking spice and dried papaya. The presentation is dry as the lemon/lime acidity easily balances the residual sugar of 1 percent.
