Gewürztraminer comes in several styles, and all are increasingly
popular. Our Valley Oaks style is made with a traditional taste
profile, just a bit sweet but oh so perfect at holiday or any time you
need a wine to complement a meal. Crisp acidity is a hallmark of this
wine. Grapes are sourced from cool-climate regions of California
(hot weather just won’t do for this varietal) and we treat the grapes
to a slow, cold fermentation averaging 50° in nothing but stainless steel tanks. The absence of oak is purposeful.
|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.
