Banyan Gewürztraminer 2019, Monterey County, California


Monterey County, California


"I'm floating down a river, oars freed from their homes long ago." Kenny Likitprakong is one of our favorite producers and this is the wine that started it all. Kenny is half Thai, and after searching for a California wine that would pair well with Thai food, Kenny decided to just make his own. Subtle scents of jasmine, lychee, and dried mango permeate the nose, while flavors of green papaya, honeysuckle and apple are adrift on the palate. Pair this wine with Thai food (obviously), roast turkey, or crab dip. It does want to make you take a trip to Central Park for a boat road on the lake.
