Dutton Goldfield 2018 Dutton Ranch Gewürztraminer Russian River ($30)

If you’ve shied away from Gewürztraminer to avoid fat-bodied, overly perfum-y versions, this wine could have you singing the grape’s praises. It is dry and refreshing with just the right undercurrent of honeysuckle to its citrus-kiwi-mango fruits.

Throw a dinner party, pour this wine blind with a spicy Ahi poke appetizer, and I bet half the guests will think it’s sauvignon blanc or some other grape variety.

A delicious show of the style diversity of Gewürz.
