Getting down with some Finger Lakes Gewürz’!

In a little more than three hours I will participating in another Twitter Taste Live event sponsored by Finger Lakes Wine Country and The New York Cork Report. This time the feature grape is Gewürztraminer, one of my favorites. I love examples from Washington State & Alsace, but have only had a handful of New York ones that I honestly don’t remember. Looking for the Finger Lakes to bring it tonight with some Gewürz goodness!  Thinking I’ll be pairing them with some cheese, either a Roquefort or the classic love of Gewürz, Mr. Muenster.

A few of my local tweeps will be joining me @dasjorge, @thegoodwineguru, @berylliumblonde & @voxinferior and hopefully a couple of others.

Here is the lineup of what we are tasting…

Keuka Spring Vineyard, 2008 Gewurztraminer  (Click here for tasting notes in PDF)
Sheldrake Point Vineyard, 2008 Gewurztraminer (Click here for tasting notes in PDF)
Lakewood Vineyards, 2007 Gewurztraminer (Click here for tasting notes in PDF)

Follow the action on the Finger Lakes TTL site, and/or follow the hashtags #FLXWINE & #TTL on twitter tonight starting at 8pm Eastern.

Cheers!
