This engaging blend of Pinot Gris, Riesling, Muscat and Gewurztraminer is one of Navarro’s most popular wines. Forward fruit conveys a hint of sweetness that pairs wonderfully well with somewhat spicy dishes that are so common in Arizona.John Vankat, Arizona Daily Sun, January 11, 2017.

2014 Edelzwicker

Aromas of honeysuckle, honey and ripe peach are bright and enticing in this slightly sweet, smooth fruit bowl of a wine. Medium body and mild acidity make it easy to drink. The sweetness and fruitiness should pair nicely with cheeses and spicy foods.- Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast, December 1, 2015.

2013 Edelzwicker

This almost clear colored Edelzwicker is a very nice value wine. It opens up with a pleasant mild pineapple and lychee like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is mildly sweet, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe pineapple with notes of minerality, lychee and orange. The finish is semi-sweet and its ripe flavors linger nicely. This wine would pair well with orange Chinese chicken. Ken Hoggins, KensWineGuide.com, January 23, 2015.

Another such wine with a dramatic history is Navarro’s superb Edelzwicker, which is aged in old oak ovals to give it added depth. At $15, it’s one of the wine world’s greatest white wine bargains. .Dan Berger, Vintage Experiences, July 18, 2013.

This is a blend of Gewürztraminer Riesling and Pinot Gris. This wine is deliciously balanced and, at this price, a super restaurant by the glass sipper.

2007 Edelzwicker

2006 Edelzwicker

A lovely wine for the money, made from riesling, gewürztraminer, and pinot gris grapes. Enticing flower aromas, with a palate of litchi and lime. Our favorite wine to have with Thanksgiving leftovers, or for any holiday lunch, don't be surprised when this turns up on my holiday wine picks this year. Excellent QPR - Good Wines Under $20, Friday, October 12, 2007.

Navarro's latest Alsatian style blend of Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris has a nice dose of cinnamon on the nose in addition to the blossomy floral notes. There's an edgy crispness and just a hint of sugar on a modest finish. Vibrant and very food-friendly. - Jon Bonné, San Francisco Chronicle, August 10, 2007.

2001 Edelzwicker

Wine of the Month. Upon tasting this exceedingly well-done selection from Navarro, everyone on wine staff looked at each other and smiled... You'll smile too when you taste this scrumptious production that's simply the perfect call as our November "Wine-of-the-Month!" It leads off with a highly aromatic nose of cinnamon stick, white peach and melon followed by an exquisitely balanced palate of assorted stone fruits; including nectarine and comice pear, along with significant strands of golden delicious apple, quince and crème brûlée. Nuances of litchi, lemon zest and Asian star fruit and accented wonderfully by the wine's underpinnings of slate, zesty acidity and rocky minerality. In short, this wine is a tour de force endeavor that showcases a harmonious marriage of two grape varietals ideally suited for each other. - Hi-Time Wine Cellars, November 2002.

2000 Edelzwicker

Gewürz-like, with nice spiciness. Off-dry finish. Best Buy. - Laurie Daniel, San Jose Mercury News, August 29, 2001.
