Gewürztraminer 'Orange Wine'

This year we are making a small batch of 'Orange' Gewürztraminer.

Machine harvested from our vineyards on September 25 at 21.6 brix, these lovely grapes were fermented on their skins in open top bins for seven days with QA23 yeast and without temperature control. After pressing, the juice was placed in American Oak (neutral barrels) where it will stay cellared for a few months.

Harvest Continues

The relatively dry and frost free conditions have allowed us to pick what is ripe and allow more time for the late season varieties to mature. This week we brought in the last of our Riesling, Ravat and Vidal Blanc, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot still hanging.  The weather next week is looking superb with temps in the 60's and 70's with full sunshine.  Perfect for our reds.  Our yields are good and the brix are right where we need them to be.
