Fetzer White Zinfandel California Mendocino County Rosé 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The wine is a deep golden straw color, with a nose of dried apricot, spicy peach, with a touch of rose petal and honeysuckle. The crisp green apple, honeyed apricot and peach flavors meld with the traditional spicy flavors of Gewurztraminer. This medium-bodied wine's off dry style strikes the perfect balance between its sweetness and bright crisp acidity. A versatile wine, it pairs nicely with spicy Asian cooking as well as grilled chicken and fish.

    A bit too tart and spicy for my taste, this wine convinced me to stick with Oregon/Washington Gewurztraminers.

    I used to enjoy this a few years ago, just opened a bottle and I couldn't even finish a glass. I am sure it is more my own tastes changing and not the winte - but it was way too sweet for me and not dry enough.

    I purchased this wine to pair with spicy Indian food and it tasted great together! It was sweeter than I expected, but not in a disgusting syrupy way! For the price, it was just what I was looking for.

    Fans of our Fetzer Gewurztraminer won't be disappointed withthis vintage. 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. One wine writer described our Gavurz as a 'Two WoW Experience: great tasting and great energy.' I like that.
