Fetzer Gewurztraminer Shaly Loam 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

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's 2012 is one of their better Gewurztraminers in quite awhile. This wine has more extract and richness than most previous vintages. Nice spice and fruit combination. RS probably 2%. A steal at $5. Did Concha Y Toro ownership make a difference in quality here? The only thing stopping me from rating it a 93 is that it lacks acid. My rating 90.

Fruity with mineral notes. Rather low acid for a white.

Just about as sweet as I will tolerate and very peasant, crisp, chirpy and candid, no subtlety, just a good vibrant wine.

Rich, fruity and clean aromas of orange spice join with pineapple, baked pears and hints of tell-tale cinnamon. The wine can be zesty, and flavors of clove, orange and caramelized apples come to the fore.

Our Gewürztraminer is rich and complex. It is made with a traditional taste profile, so it is just a bit sweet with crisp acidity. There are aromas of tangerine, mango and orange spice that are joined by pineapple baked pear and a bit of cinnamon. The wine is zesty with flavors of clove, orange and caramelized apples. - Dennis Martin, Winemaker
