Pindar's 2001 Late Harvest Gewurztraminer
I have many family members and friends I have turned on to dessert wines. Why not? We live in one of the greatest dessert wine regions in the world. And one of the most delicious an infectious dessert wines I have ever tried comes fom Pindar.
Pindar is a popular stop on the North Fork Wine Route, in Long Island, New York. Pindar is known for its chardonnay and it's other light red and white wines. But if you go to Pindar, or buy it, and you hven't tried the Pindar Late Harvest Gewirztraminer, then you have wasted your time.
Pindar's 2001 Late Harvest Gewurztraminer is Double Gold Medal Winner, was voted Best Dessert Wine in New York, and is consistenly one of our proudest and most requested wines come dessert time.
It is one of the rishest, sweetest dessert wines with concentrated flavors of apricot, peach and honey coming through. But it has nice acidity, and what mught be a cloying, grotesque syrupy mess in lesser hands, is truly a wonderful elixer.
It's not inexpensive at $30.00 a bottle, but far less than it's comparable Canadian cousins. Try this...I promise you will like it.
