2012 Chateau Ste. Michelle Gewurztraminer
From: Columbia Valley, Washington
Serve with: Roast turkey, Southeast Asian cuisine
Last week, I recommended a red that would go well with the Thanksgiving feast. Here's a white for last-minute shoppers, and it's much more readily available. This is a well-balanced, full-bodied, spicy gewurztraminer with good acidity to offset the modest amount of residual sugar. It offers flavors of honey, peach, apple, line and tropical fruit and has the heft it takes to stand up to the wide variety of flavors on the turkey table.
