Fossil & Fawn, Gewürztraminer Oregon 2020
Williamette Valley, Oregon, United States
From the producer-
2020 will be remembered for a variety of reasons. Los in the mix was the delightful quality and potential that the vintage held. Absurdly low yields and a mild growing season rewarded us with wines of concentration and balance. For this bottling, fruit came from 38-year-old vines at Montinore Estate Vineyards and was allowed to macerate, on skins, for 219 days in egg-shaped fermenters. After draining and pressing, the wine aged for two months in French oak barrels before bottling without fining or filtration. In the glass, you'll find aromas of fresh apricot, ginger, and satsuma.
