Ovum Wines

Gorge Sound Oregon Gewürztraminer 2015

Ovum makes “quiet wines of place.” This is a wine that really sang for me and reminded me just how much I find inspiration from aromatic white wines. It’s old world and new world. It’s expressive but not heavy. It’s supremely unpretentious. Perfumed lychee and wasps of smokey tangerine. Full bodied. Neither oily nor fat. — 4 days ago

One of my early favorite producers of Gewurztraminer. Navarro & Goldeneye are excellent stops on the drive to coast of Mendocino.

Yes! That's how we found Navarro, on the way to Goldeneye!

L' Ambroisie Alsace Gewürztraminer 2015

Superb companion to a wonderful homemade foie gras mi-cuit. Spices, elderflower, honey a bit, white flowers. Wonderfully balanced palate with a strong acid backbone, a touch of SR conferring a slight roundness to it, spices, a good grip to compliment the fat from the foie gras, and a very long finish with elder flower. I’m done drinking sweet wines with foie gras. Dry Gewurtztraminer for the win! Merry Christmas ! — 24 days ago

Central Coast Dry Gewürztraminer 2017

Pale white in color. Floral and spice notes in nose. Crisp, slight seed bitterness, grapefruit peel and jasmine tea-like flavor on finish. Dry as advertised. Drying skin astringency in aftertaste, mild but pleasing somehow. Well structured. Addictively tasty. A superior gewurtztraminer. — 16 hours ago

January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

This was a very solid gewürztraminer that came across fairly light. Acidity didn’t show until the very end. Light and crisp. Not much lychee notes, but it had that orange blossom, baked apple pie and sweet tropical stone fruit notes that I expect.

Cuvée Particulière Gewürztraminer 1553

Very surprising nose of oxidation, alcohol and apple but the mouth is mellow, round and soft. — 11 hours ago

Alsace AOC Gewürztraminer 2014

Can’t remember if this is my second or third bottle of this over the last few years but it never disappoints. Nose isn’t shy with the musky, earthy, lychee nut and sweet pear scents. Sweet fruit cocktail on the first hit, but then some nice minerality and acids enter on the off dry finish. Amazing for $15. — 4 days ago

Delicious and shocked it was gewürztraminer. It was sweet/botrytis like, but not overly so. I didn’t pick up lychee or honeyed pear that I usually do with this grape. Touch of petrol. My guess was Alsace Pinot Gris in vindage tardives style. At least I got the country and region.
