Gewurztraminer comes in several styles, and all are increasingly popular. Valley Oaks 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 they treat the grapes to a slow, cold fermentation averaging 50° in nothing but stainless steel tanks. The absence of oak is purposeful.
"It’s often called gavurtz because it’s hard to say, and even harder to spell. This wine, though, is a secret weapon, great for taming spicy foods or sipping on its own. Enjoy the honeyed apricot and peach flavors in the glass, and breathe deeply to capture the aromas of rose petals and honeysuckle. Lots of people love this wine, even if they’ll never spell it. Just ask for gavurtz. We’ll know what you mean.", Dennis Martin, Winemaker
