Wine Blogging Wednesday: 2004 Fetzer Gweuiztraminer

Wbw_pasta

Wine Blogging Wednesdays! I’ve never participated! Not because I didn’t want to, but mostly because I am not really a wine drinker.  I think that might have changed.

Megan came over on Monday night to help me move some furniture. I bribed her with talk of home cooking, wine and gossip. Who can resist that?

I whipped up a quick pasta dish using linguine, fresh diced zuchinni and yellow squash, some of the Fetzer Gewuiztraminer white wine, garlic, olive oil, lemon and butter.

I had roasted some peppers over the weekend steamed some green beans and sliced a couple of tomatoes, popped a loaf of garlic bread in the oven and 30 minutes later, we were enjoying a fresh spring meal with a bottle of sweet white wine.

Now here’s the part where you discover I have no idea what I am talking about when discussing wine. I hear people talk about white wine being dry. I couldn’t tell if this wine was dry. It was sweet and refreshing and a little fruity. It seemed to be a little more carbonated than other wines I have tasted, but not as much as champagne. I quite enjoyed it and even had another glass last night with my leftovers. (OK, I actually killed the bottle.) I would definitely buy this wine. (This particular bottle was given to me by 2 friends who stayed a weekend at my place.)

So hopefully now I will happily participate in future Wine Blogging Wednesdays!

    And a great meal it was! The wine was a sweet wine. According to my father (Who Knows Wine), most people start out with a sweeter wine palate, and over the course of a few years of regular wine-drinking, develop a drier wine palate. The bottle I brought – the chard – is a much drier white than the gewurtzemeininschlagenfluffen. Or however you spell it. 🙂 Sometime for a SnB we should do a wine-tasting! Or – and this is way fun too – we should go to Total Wine/Liquor World in Delaware and do a tasting! It’s really fun. 🙂

    I know what you mean Stella, “dry” in wine terms as I’ve learned means “little or no sweetness/sugar” 🙂 I still have a pretty sweet palate but I like the part where you try to figure out which fruit or floral it tastes like. Most importantly, have fun!
