Alexander Valley Vineyards Gewürztraminer


This Cali Gewürz is harvested exclusively from a single small CCOF (“California Certified Organic Farmers”) vineyard about one hour north of the estate winery, located in Mendocino’s cool growing region of Potter Valley. This rugged location is the key to the great acidity and balance in our Gewürz. The fruit is harvested at night, then cold fermented, the juice rests in stainless steel tanks to preserve the natural acidity and the bright aromatics of the wine. The 2023 Gewürz has an enticing perfumed, floral nose and initial aromas of apple, grapefruit, citrus, rose, tropical lychee, stone fruit and pear. The this floral wine is complemented by bright acidity. In the glass there are spicy flavors of apple, pear, grapefruit, along with long finish.
