Tasting Note: Heavenly “Big G” White

Heavenly is a new vineyard and winery, about an hour north of Grand Rapids, just off US 131.  Their Big G is a 100% Gewurztraminer bottling.  I enjoyed this bottle with risotto and wild mushrooms a few weeks ago.

Heavenly “Big G” White (NV) Michigan – $11

Color: medium gold.

Aroma: slightly foxy, mostly apple and white grape on the nose.

Taste: a hint of sweetness – I’d classify this as off-dry rather than true dry. Golden apples, and a little more spice, with good acidic balance throughout. Quite nice with rich food.

Don’t drink this too cold!  I made the mistake of first tasting it after it had been out of the refrigerator for just 10 minutes.  This really opens up when it gets to around 50F.

Recommended – a great wine for the money!
