Wine Review: This very pale yellow color white blend is always very good and a great deal. It opens with an inviting and gentle peach bouquet. On the palate this wine is light bodied, balanced and crisp. The flavor profile is a tangerine and peach blend with a touch of mineralty mixed in. The finish is semi-dry and pleasantly refreshing. This wine is a nice poolside wine to enjoy with coconut shrimp. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Navarro's 2011 Edelzwicker goes back to the 17th century parameters. It is truly noble, containing 42% Riesling, 33% Gewürztraminer and 25% Pinot Gris. Aromatic, spicy and lip smacking, it would be great with foie gras, sauerkraut, flammekueche, kugelhopf, Strasbourg sausage, and Munster cheese.

Organic status: not organic
