Fetzer Gewürztraminer California Valley Oaks 2006
In this vintage to be remembered, about two-thirds of the grapes were sourced from the cool Central Coast region of California, where early spring rains led to a bit of Noble Rot in just enough grape bunches to add a touch of complexity and richness to the wine. Tangerine, mango and clean aromas of orange spice join with pineapple, baked pears and hints of tell-tale cinnamon, common to Gewürztraminer. This wine can be zesty, and flavors of clove, orange and caramelized apples come to the fore.
Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer. One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production. Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.
my favorite white wine
Favorite, reliable Gewürztraminer--perfect mix of sweet and tang for pairing with spicy food. Grapefruit, pineapple, cinnamon, with a hint of effervescence. Used to get this for $6, but still a great value for under $10.
I love this wine! It is much easier to love than to pronounce... This is great with dinner, as well as a night-cap! It is of the sweet veriety and Fetzer does it best. This is my old faithful if I can't decide what I want, and as gift giving. Buy it and enjoy!
