BLUE QUAIL 2021 Gewurztraminer
Potter Valley, Mendocino County, California
*CCOF Certified Organic Grapes
This is 100% Gewurztraminer sourced exclusively from Blue Quail’s certified organic estate vineyards located in Potter Valley in Mendocino County, California. The estate is on 500 acres, 160 acres under vine, that straddles the Russian River, neighbors the Mendocino National Forest and sits up at 1,200 feet in altitude. Temperatures regularly plummet 40-45 degrees each night, allowing a longer maturation period and the grapes to develop a fullness of flavor that is balanced by a crisp acidity.
The grapes are whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to maintain the freshness of the varietal.
