Big bang for the bucks

We harvested a healthy Gewürztraminer crop in 2008 and proceeded to ferment and age our normal quantity of wine. This spring, fretting about the teetering economy, we decided to bottle less premium wine than in prior years. We always sell off our weaker lots as bulk wine but because of reduced bottling needs, we ended up with some excellent lots even after the bulk sales. Navarro's mailing list customers always snap up our Chardonnay Table Wine in a matter of weeks because they know it's both up to Navarro quality standards and easy on the wallet. We decided to bottle the remaining high quality lots of Gewürztraminer as Table Wine too. The Gewürztraminer is from Estate Grown grapes with fruit from some of our favorite fields: Pond, Peach, Apple and West Hill.

We have a simple recipe for producing Navarro's "big bang for the buck" Table Wines. We simply ferment and age more of each variety than we intend on bottling for our regularly priced releases, leaving us many excellent lots and portions of lots to select from for Navarro's Table Wine cuvées. That's why the new Gewürztraminer Table Wine is delicious and affordable. [below]

It exhibits a similar aroma and flavor profile as the Estate Bottled cuvée: honeysuckle and citrus blossom aromas with crisp fruit tasting of peach, lychee and quince. It is not quite as intense or as dry but represents an exceptional value. The wine is in very limited supply and a great way to replenish the wine cellar without breaking the bank. Gold Medal winner.
