Turkey Day is almost upon us! I think you could go in several directions for pairing your gobbler and your goblet, but one particular favorite is a dry Gewurztraminer. Gundlach Bundschu has a FABULOUS one. Here is the description in Wine Enthusiast:
“A very nice example of a dry Gewurtz. Name an exotic spice, and you’ll find it here, especially cinnamon. The fruit is all about oranges, pears and lychee, while acidity is brisk and fine. Will challenge home chef and sommelier pairing talent. Pork and stewed fruit come to mind”. (90 points)
Equally fabulous are the promotional videos they have pulled together this year-Turkey Love. If you have five minutes, they are worth viewing.
Depending on your sides and personal preference, you can always go with a Chardonnay or Pinot. I am curious to hear from you folks on this one. What is your favorite Thanksgiving wine? Do you go with more reasonable and more of it? Or one glass of something super special? Is there a side you have in mind or do focus on the bird? (or Tofurkey, Turducken, Spam?) Whatever you pour, you will, no doubt, have much to be thankful for this year! Cheers!
