Scheid Vineyards Gewurztraminer 2019

America, California
Scheid Vineyards Gewurztraminer

Gewürztraminer (pronounced ge-verts-trah-mee-ner) is an aromatic variety grown throughout the world, most notably in Alsace, France. “Gewürz” translated from German means “spice,” and that is just the trait that makes Gewürztraminer so fabulous. Our 2019 Gewürztraminer is a fragrant wine with aromas of stone fruit, citrus, lychee and a hint of rose petal. Fresh, sweet flavors of tropical fruit and a honeysuckle finish make this a delicious wine to serve as an apéritif, but it is also a terrific food match. The perfect balance of residual sugar and bright acidity gives it wonderful versatility. Try with spicy or highly seasoned foods, soft cow’s milk cheeses, fresh fruit, ribs slathered in tangy barbecue sauce, or with butter-pecan sweet potatoes at the holiday table.

Winery Description

Located 120 miles south of San Francisco lies the deep Monterey Submarine Canyon.  This submarine canyon brings a constant upwelling of cold, nutrient rich waters to the surface of Monterey Bay, making it one of the richest and most biodiverse marine habitats in the world.  

This cold, upwelling water chills the air, which creates fog that flows down from Monterey Bay into the Salinas Valley, cooling the vineyards and giving Monterey  County the longest growing season of all of California’s famed viticultural districts.  This cool fog often lingers over the vineyards until mid-day. Then as the sun warms the valley floor, the fog burns off and the warm air rises, drawing in a cool, reliable ocean breeze over the vineyards and preventing the grapes from overheating in the hot California afternoon sun.  The cooler temperatures and longer growing season allow the grapes to ripen slowly and develop rich and intricate fruit flavors while preserving crucial acidity.

Scheid Vineyards has been growing high quality grapes in the middle of this viticultural sweet spot since 1972.
