Foris Gewurztraminer 2011
Gewurztraminer from Rogue River Valley, Oregon
Aromas of citrus blossom, rose petal, orange peel and a touch of nutmeg are aromatically enticing. Flavors of pineapple, nectarine, and a hint of cardamom are full bodied and richly textured yet restrained and lively. Gewurztraminer is fabulously expressive in its youth and ages surprisingly well.
Wine Enthusiast - "The lovel floral aromas are a pure expression of the grape’s unique spice and rose petal characteristics. It's deeply flavorful, soft, elegant and lingering, with a lychee flavor. "

About Rogue River ValleyThe Rogue River Valley is located in southern Oregon, near the towns of Medford and Ashland. Though primarily known for its orchards, vineyard land and wineries are increasing. In the higher elevation areas, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris do best, while in the warmer, lower elevations, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are finding some success.
About OregonOregon has long been an agricultural state, producing everything from hazelnuts to cattle. The Willamette Valley in particular is a fertile basin for all sorts of produce. Not quite pegged as a wine state, in 1965, a UC Davis graduate named David Lett decided that the Willamette's climate mirrored that of Burgundy in France. With that in mind, he decided to plant some Pinot Noir clones to see how they did. And a good gamble it was. The Willamette is now one of the only regions in the world to focus solely on Pinot Noir as its red variety. Also known for Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The southern part of Oregon has been slower in delving into the world wine market, but has been making excellent strides with their Rhone style varietals, like Syrah and Grenache. There are also coastal regions producing promising wines.
