The Triple R Ranch Great Blue Heron Gewurztraminer, sourced from Texas Vineyards including Lahey Vineyards and Dell Valley Ranch, is a star-bright color of light straw with a green tinge.

Description

2017 Blue Heron Gewurztraminer

Honoring this aromatic grape, our Blue Heron Gewurztraminer, pronounced by Lone Star regulars as Girls-Are-Meaner, takes you across the high elevations of Texas landscape delivering floral and ripe tropical fruits to our palate along with subtle herbal notes. The Ranch Wines Gewürztraminer demonstrates how the terroir of the Texas High Plains is suitable for producing fruit of incredible quality and depth.  Hot, dry climate, sandy soil, and high temperature swings from the elevated dessert plains creates nutrient poor conditions where vines are forced to struggle and dig deep into the earth for nourishment, all factors found in the most acclaimed wine regions of the world. Fly away with a glass of Great Blue Heron!

Legend Of The Ranch Story: Great Blue Heron are native to the Triple R Ranch, and with just one sip wine-drinkers are transported to the various natural habitats visited by these majestic creatures. The beautiful birds are typically observed flying gracefully above or waiting casually through waterways at the Triple R Ranch.  Mr. Ross first learned his wine-making craft in the Finger Lakes region of New York where the Iroquois Indians believe a sighting of Great Blue Heron brings good luck!  Fly away with a glass of Great Blue Heron.
