The Alsace region of France is known for producing some of the world’s finest white wines. Noted for outstanding dry Rieslings and flavorful Gewurztraminers, the region is similar in climate to Long Island’s North Fork.
Edelzwicker means noble blend and pays homage to the great wines of Alsace. Osprey’s Edelzweicker is a heavy Pinot Gris blend with Gewürztraminer and Riesling added for complexity and backbone. Fermented in stainless steel barrels, this wine has aromas and flavors of white peach, cut flowers and spice, with a crisp mineral finish.
Edelzwicker is best paired with shellfish, poultry dishes and fine aromatic cheeses (might we suggest Limburger?).
