This year's Edelzwicker blend consists primarily of Pinot Gris and Riesling, with a small amount of Gewürztraminer. Unfortunately, the 2022 Gewürztraminer harvest was severely impacted by difficult spring weather. The Pinot Gris grapes came from two separate pickings, one from neighboring Valley Foothills Vineyard, and the other from Navarro's Hammer Olsen block. The Riesling portion also came from two fields, with the larger lot from Valley Foothills Ridge vineyard and the smaller lot from Navarro's Campsite vineyard, which was partially botrytised due to a major September storm. We fermented the botrytised fruit to almost dry, resulting in a wine sporting green apple flavors with hints of apricot.

The Gewürztraminer portion was produced from the North Hill vineyard and adds light tropical fruit notes. All the wines were cool-fermented in French oak ovals and aged sur lie for seven months, giving the wine a savory aspect. The balance is consistent with recent vintages, and the blend offers flavors of apple, peach and lemon. Gold Medal-winner.
