2011 Ferrington Vineyard Gewurztraminer, Anderson Valley
The Gewurztraminer shows pure and tropical aromas of toasted coconut, mango and bananas upon opening of this dry, Alsatian styled wine. Vibrant flavors of passion fruit, lychee and guava greet the palate. There is beautiful tension between the crisp acidity of the fruit and subtle, creamy texture from the neutral French oak barrels. This crisp and refreshing Gewurztraminer with its mouthwatering acidity and minerality captures the true flavor profile of the renowned Alsatian wines from the Anderson Valley.
The Ferrington Vineyard was first planted in the late 1960s and is tucked away just off Highway 128 in Boonville, a small town in the heart of the Anderson Valley. Current owners Kurt and Heather Schoeneman purchased the vineyard in 1997 where the vineyard is currently planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyard has a gentle south-facing slope, and has decomposed sandstone and clay soils with three to four feet of topsoil. These soil conditions along with the cool climate of the Anderson Valley make this vineyard ideal for growing Gewurztraminer.
