THE WINE
The 2015 Edelzwicker was inspired by the original prestigious designation—including only noble varietals, such as Gewürztraminer,
Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Muscat Canelli. It displays refreshing green apple, lychee, lemon, and stone fruit. The palate is clean and crisp
with citrus, white flowers, and melon flavors. This well-balanced Alsatian-style blend has a wonderful medium-to-long finish.

THE VINTAGE AND VINEYARDS
The 2015 growing season was, again, extremely warm with an earlier-than-average harvest. Summer was very hot, with no rain from
mid-May to mid-August. Cooler climate vines such as Riesling and Gewurztraminer reacted to these conditions by shutting down, pushing harvest up to the third week of August. Fruit intensity was lighter than normal, resulting in delicate white wines with ripe flavors. Fruit for this wine was exclusively sourced from the Columbia Valley, from such esteemed vineyard sites as Art Den Hoed Vineyard, Hogue Ranches, Flying M Vineyard, Andrews Vineyard, Olsen Vineyard, and others.

THE WINEMAKING
Grapes were picked at night and in the early morning hours, when sugar levels are stable. They were then brought direct to press to extract fresh fruit character before fermentation in 100% stainless steel. The wine was bottled in mid-February. With no oak influence,
the wine displays a crisp, refreshing character.

For my taste, this is the perfect white wine. Not too sweet, not too dry. A taste of honey according to my tongue. Now I need to figure out where to buy it in Portland!

My absolute favorite wine this summer. Perfectly balanced. My spouse, not normally a fan of white wines, cannot get enough of Edelzwicker!
