The Union Sacre project could be thought of as a 3-set Venn diagram: one part French, Michigander, and Californian. The two winemakers reponsible (set 1 and 2) crossed paths while working in California vineyards (set 3), unified over a love for old-world varietals, and voila! An Alsatian style wine, made on the West Coast, by two guys from neither place.

This Gewurztraminer is bone dry--without a drop of residual sugar. Fermented "on the skins," you'll immediately be drawn to its rich copper color. The grape's characteristic floral notes are here with just and touch of honeysuckle, and stone fruit. A little spice comes through on the palate with a clean, bright finish.
