Sakonnet Vineyards has pioneered the production of fine wines in Southern New England for thirty-five years. All of our estate wines reflect the favorable maritime climate found along Rhode Island's beautiful coast.
This wine combines the crisp acidity of Vidal and the floral, spicy hallmarks of Gewurztraminer. This light-bodied blend is yellow-white in color with subtle white grapefruit aromas. The strength of the fruit flavors creates the perception that the wine is off-dry, yet it is not. The stainless steel treatment highlights the crisp, coastal acidity. Grassy, white grapefruit flavors linger through the fresh finish, which is medium in length.
Both the Vidal and Gewurztraminer components have distinctive flavor profiles which allow this blend to pair well with a variety of dishes. Dry jack, goat and gouda cheeses work superbly with the wine’s spicy, citrus character. Prosciutto, veal parmigiana, sausage, sushi, grilled seafood, Asian or other spicy dishes are also appropriate due to the blend’s fruitiness. Suggested seasonings are black pepper, dill, fennel, oregano and sesame.
