Fetzer Gewurztraminer 2005 wine review by (PB)

My pernnial favorite for Summer time quaffing is this wine with the funny name. It is pronounced Ge-vurts-tra-meen-er and means spicy Traminer which is the grape. It is golden with a ripe, sweet peachy/apricotty bouquet and apples underneath.

In the mouth it is subtly “spritzig” (German for effervescent or bubbly) with nice mouth feel, good acid, good balance and an apricot finish. It is a little lighter than some past years but outstanding as a chilled, quaffing wine or with split pea soup (which I just had for dinner). I recommend this wine and although I see it around for $10-$11, I found it for $7.50 is Boston. Raise a glass of this nice, nice soothing, comfort wine!
