Chateau St. Jean 1980 I.B.S.L.H. Jimtown Ranch Gewurztraminer
As with the unique beerenauslesen of Germany and the honeyed Sauternes of France, this rich and luscious Gewurztraminer was picked from grapes which were totally affected with the noble mold, botrytis cinerea. Given proper cellaring, development should continue well into the next century.
