By far the most popular white wine in our tasting room is Edelzwicker. This is some feat given that numerous customers ask how to pronounce it. Some think it's just a fanciful name and don't realize that in Alsace Edelzwicker refers to a blend of their noble grapes. In the 19th century the most expensive Alsatian table wines were blends between varieties; today the highest priced Alsatian wines are labeled as a unique varietal. Wine styles change, so don't be confused when you prefer this $13 wine over more expensive bottles. In last year's professional Mendocino County Wine Judging, our 2008 Edelzwicker was proclaimed the best white wine regardless of price. Some lots were only partially fermented but the wine is carefully balanced with high acidity so the finish is crisp and clean. Try a bottle on a hot summer day or with a spicy Indian or Asian dish; you will see why 100% varietals aren't necessarily better. Gold Medal winner.
[right] When the requirement for a wine to taste like a specific variety is removed, winemakers can create a more complex wine by blending between varieties. Simon was bored, but Ted concentrated to blend 40% Gewürztraminer, 37% Riesling, 20% Pinot Gris and 3% Muscat Blanc.
