Gewurztraminer

Don’t let the hard-to-pronounce name put you off! This is an easy-to-drink wine based in the German style, featuring notes of tropical fruit. Off-dry, deeply flavored and complex, this wine will blow you away with spicy aromas of apricots and pineapple with honeysuckle overtones. We like to pair LaBelle “Gewurz” with sausages and sauerkraut, but it also complements Asian fare or a cheese course.

May be cellared up to 3 years.

 

About Gewurztraminer:  Gewurztraminer is an aromatic wine grape variety with a pink to red skin color, which classifies it as a “white wine grape”.  The variety performs best in cooler climates, has high natural sugar and usually yields off-dry wines.

Granite State Red

In this rich, velvety decadence, we combine wine made from ripe blueberries and the French hybrid grape Marechal Foch to create a uniquely New England red wine. The touch of blueberry makes this red grape wine a dry yet bold crowd pleaser. It is silky smooth on the palate with berry flavors, floral notes and soft tannins. Perfectly balanced, this wine is neither too sweet nor tart, and is excellent with steak, grilled meats or Italian fare.

Infused with French oak cubes for approximately 3 months.

May be cellared up to 5 years.

 

About Marechal Foch:  Marechal Foch is a hybrid French red wine grape variety that was developed in Alsace, France. It is used to make a variety of styles of wine, ranging from a light red wine to intense dark “inky” wines, and even sweet Port-like wines. Wines made from Marechal Foch tend to have strong acidity, aromas of black fruits and, in some cases, toasted wheat, mocha, vanilla bean, and musk.
