’09 White Wine Recap, Update, Status…

Posted by Judy Phelps on January 1, 2010

Here is a run down on the 09 whites, all are done fermenting and cold-stabilizing. Judy tasted through them yesterday right from the tanks. Sauvignon Blanc: dry, crisp, loaded with citrus flavors. Pinot Gris: we picked this young so as to do it in a ‘vinho verde’ style, low alcohol, dry and high acid; a great food wine. Gewurztraminer – bone dry and lightly oaked, knocked our socks off! Edelzwicker – made from our estate grapes this year(Don does a great job with the vineyard, this wine is really delicious), only a tiny amount produced, done dryer than in previous years.

We will most like be tasting a couple of these out of the tank over MLK weekend, so plan to be here.
