Much like Riesling, Gewürztraminer is a variety that is ideally placed in the cool climate of the Finger Lakes. This wine draws from the oldest planting of Gewürztraminer in the region and subsequently exhibits outstanding depth and maturity. A long harvest in 2012 allowed for a long ripening period, resulting in outstanding flavors. This dry-style wine accentuates the characteristic floral and spice notes particular to Gewürztraminer. A vivid flowery bouquet with hints of peach and spice masterfully prepare the way for a silky mouthful of melon and a touch of coriander.

With each vintage, grapes present different flavors and intensities. As a result, Frost Cuvée is specially crafted each year to best reflect the outcome of the growing season. A differing blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, creates a smooth and approachable off-dry blend. There are bright fruit and floral notes up front while light pear and a touch of spice grace the palate. Refreshing, yet complex, Frost Cuvée is a perfect wine for any occasion, from Thanksgiving dinner to summer sunsets, and everything in between.
