Picked up for Christmas dinner at the local QFC. Treveri is a Columbia Valley producer that specializes in 100% varietal sparkling wines. This bottle is a Gewürztraminer made in the traditional méthode champenoise. This method calls for a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The Gewürztraminer grape is not typically known for sparkling wines as it’s quite sweet, however, that sweetness can fit a demi-sec quite nicely. Demi-sec, or “half-dry”, denotes a semi-sweet wine with sugars typically between 32-50 grams/liter (g/l) of residual sugars. In contrast, most dry table wines are <10 g/l. The sweetness of the sparkling wine worked great with the holiday fare. ~$17 | #treveri #gewürtztraminer #sparklingwine

On the eyes: Clear, pale yellow, tiny fine bubbles, starbright, med stain, med tears, no floc.

On the nose: Ripe lychee, tropical floral notes, with lingering spicy herbaceousness. Med alcohol.

On the tongue: Med- tannin, med acid, med alcohol, med body. Lychee, passion fruit, rose petal, finishing clean. Nice typical Gewürztraminer with fine effervescent bubbles - be warned, a bit sweet.

We really enjoyed this wine. Sweeter than we normally like but the bubbles soften it. Still has the characteristics you would expect from a gewürztraminer which made this a fun bottle.

Lovely if slightly too sweet (yes, it’s Demi-sec) with strong notes of toast and caramel apples.
